Absolutely fantastic!

Wonderful to add to the collection - flavourful and delicious - becoming hard to source....

A mouth full of wow!

This might very well be the best whiskey I have ever had. It's not the classical smoked scotty, but it's so much more. Lighter in taste - try it!!! not my last bottle...

Litte brother of HIBIKI

Pretty unknown whisky makers from YAMAZAKURA release this really nice and tasty 16 year old blend. Very fruity, hints of honey, banana and coco. Reminds a bit on HIBIKI 17, but less oaky. Definitely worth every penny, try to grab one, before its sold out and prices rise (like all Japanese).
