— Very surprising

— Amazing, won a blind test for us and three friends with Hakushu 12 and Yamazaki 12. Has a sweetness like sake from the rice.

— I usually prefer bourbon and Irish whiskey to Scotch and Japanese whiskey, but this is great. Not smoky or peaty at all, instead fruity and spicy.

Darryl,
Wow. Soft on the tongue, sweet through the finish. Wonderfully executed. I truly enjoy the departure of this whisky from more oaky versions.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Although the description emphasizes this is not sake flavored it has a noticeable warmed sake note in nose and taste. I think it is complimentary to the overall warmth, spice and marzipan sweetness. Wonderfully smooth with a mellow oak aftertaste.
 
William
William,
Spicy warm, without being hot. Very light on the tongue and sweet, almost gives a minty tingle on the pallette with a light orange aftertaste. Good flavor and wouldn't turn down an offer to drink again.

Familiar profile with a mild flavor and mild finish, a little sweet at the end. Almost no burn.
 
Lori
Lori,
I really dig the plum flavor I got with this but it’s a bit pricey for what it is
 
Matthew
Matthew,
The nose on this one is almost aggressively sweet, with a frustratingly elusive fruitiness and a hint of cardamom. My immediate impression after the first sip was kheer, with rice, almond, and coconut coming through, and a supple mouth feel. The finish could be a bit a bit longer, but this gets a solid thumbs up from me. A very distinct experience but not just a novelty.
 
SCOTT
SCOTT,
Sweet, fruity. Hint of spice.
 
Keaton
Keaton,
It really is sweet and raisin-y. It’s got that kind of heat that you feel in your gut more than your tongue, so you can enjoy the flavors without singeing your sinuses.
 
Chris
Chris,
Smooth and pleasantly mild. Finish was slightly sweet with a small bite.

jonathan,
not bad. smoother than the typical suntory whisky, but still is a bit sharp for my taste.
 
Larry
Larry,
One of the easiest drinking whiskey I have yet to try, given I have only been hardcore bourbon fan for the last year. This whiskey is good by itself, ice washed out the flavor for me. Fruity start finishes warm and spicy in the gut. Adding this to my wishlist.

Drawn out sweetness. Plum. Soft.

Christopher,
Super tasty and interesting! Getting green grape, plum, maybe pear, maybe a touch of coconut, marzipan, and maybe even a creme brûlée thing going on. Excellent

Easy out of the gate, sweet then a raisen flavor. A soft finish. Urges you to take another sip. Well done.

First time with Rice Whisky. soft nose. Immediate plum lingering salt and floral. The flavor explodes with complex spice and sweetness! Medium end with light oak and raisin.

My favorite of the three in the tasting pack. Almost like a sake whiskey.
 
Sara
Sara,
Really loved this. Incredibly smooth, delicate flavor, with just the right amount of sweetness. Only downside is the price
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Very nice, unique whiskey. It is fruity and dignified, like a concentrated Cabernet mixed with a little plum wine. Great mouth feel and flavor development.
 
Philip
Philip,
Sweet, smooth, a little spice. Plum and rice, a little spice. A lot of nice flavors. Drinkable and smooth, but the finish fades quickly. I got this in a tasting box. Very nice dram, I wouldn’t buy it at $99 a bottle, but I would buy for 50 or less. The Fukano vault 1 is a better fit for my palate.
 
James
James,
I was pleasantly surprised! Interestingly fruity with a hint of spicy. I don’t know that I’d drop $100 on a bottle but I’d gladly drink a glass of yours! 🤓
