Taketsuru Pure Malt 12 Year Whisky

The original Nikka whiskey established by Masataka Taketsuru in Hokkaido in 1934, upon his return from years of apprenticeship in Scotland. A slight “peaty” taste with a smooth finish. Somewhat pricey at VA ABC, but if passing through Japan, grab it. — 3 months ago

Yoichi Peaty & Salty Single Malt Whisky

Certainly well named - the Japanese are very exact with this description - “Peaty and Salty” nails it. I don’t drink a lot of whisky but as the weather cools down it was a great little tipple - one of the best I’ve had in recent years. Iodine/seaweed notes through the spirit. Not shy at 55% ABV and expensive for this 500ml bottle at $300 AUD but superb quality. — 4 months ago

21 Years Old Pure Malt Whisky

Rich amber color. Luscious red fruits, licorice, honey, and cardamom in the nose. Deeper flavors on the palate, with very rich mouthfeel and hints of light smoke. Luxurious finish. Nice to be tasting some Japanese whisky again after a dry spell in California! — 10 months ago
