    Suntory has done it again.

    A very fresh whiskey, little gras, gently smoky, with water the tastes comes through and you can almost feel the Alp air.
    No Scot comes even close. Sorry.

    Fresh and teriffic

    This is all beach-grass with a bonfire off in the distance. Wish I had a Yamazaki to taste against, but on its own, just terrific. No sherry cloying, smoke only the very faintest, none of the "whiskey distillery" taste that you get in even the lightest Oban and Scapa scotches. Seriously, it's all a day at a secluded beach. Really like nothing I've ever had before. Underappreciated IMO. It's $65 in Texas and well worth it. At $110 I'd still even consider it, just for its simplicity and uniqueness.

    I don't believe it! Upon opening the bottle and pouring, two comments from about the room were to the effect "what stinks"? Not only does it have a strong odor, but also really a lot of bite. Might be better at 40% (80 Proof).
    Texas Single Malt Whisky and inexpensive single malt Irish and Scotch are much more enjoyable.

    great intro to Japanese Whiskey

    Brand new to Japanese Whiskey, but a lover of both Irish and Scotch Whiskey, this is very good whiskey. I agree with above review, I would have thought this whiskey would run more than it is. Very good, as mention NO water needed with. Thumbs UP...

    How much?

    After trying this in a restaurant at the weekend, I genuinely thought this was a whisky worth £100 or more. £55 is a bargain. I can tell you that this whisky compares excellently with the smoother peaty expressions from Islay or Campbeltown. The smell alone is worth the entry fee.

    Sweet, smooth goodness

    This is a sweet and smooth whisky with gentle, easy notes. Easy sipping. No water needed. Love it.

    what a 12yo!

    What a cracking little malt this is. Very fresh and crisp, the smoke is very subtle and comes to the fore over the time of the drink - it builds and builds but is light and really compliments the lightness of the drink. Lovely thick mouthfeel, and medium finish which is sweet. This is now my top summer whisky and possibly the best 12 year old I've ever had. Complexity of a malt much, much old...maybe up there with 18yo's
