Had in Osaka
Had at least 2 glasses everyday for about 3 days on my trip to Osaka. It's $60US/glass at the Suntory Museum bar and restaurant, but $200/glass at the Ritz (go to the former).

I had a chance to try this a few times on trips to Japan. This is an absolutely fantastic whiskey. The nose on it alone was worth the price (though I've never purchased an entire bottle).

Upon the recommendation of a friend I bought this whiskey as a sort of Dowry for my new father-in-law. Bought it in July and waiting until December to try it.
I'm a Kiwi, with all my ancestry tracing from Dundee, so I like my Scotch. Talisker has always been a favourite of mine, and this 25 in my books compares in quality to the Talisker 10. Thats sounding a bit disappointed for a $1000 bottle of scotch. Obviously it tastes nothing like the Talisker, its very heavy, you can taste the wood all through it, so much so its gotten a bit of a treacley twang, and lost the sharpness of how you'd expect the woody finish to be.
For such an expensive whiskey, I was maybe expecting a bit more. Or maybe a bit less - of a battering ram of a powerful brew.
