Too peaty. Burned going down. Not my bag at all.

Michael,
Really smooth flavor and was a nice sipper
 
Jason
Jason,
On the nose this has a spring water early morning floral smell; however, the taste is of oak “firewood without the burn” and just lingers there not developing much until a slight vanilla spice finishes.
 
Dat
Dat,
This expression is a bit harsh on the nose and definitely requires a few more years in the cask to ease the burn. The finish is not very pleasant. While I understand that Japanese whiskeys are in high demand, leading to the higher than expected price, I do not believe the Kurayoshi 8-years is all that.

Jamie,
Fine. Just fine.
 
Zane
Zane,
A very nutty finish, but the first taste is a bit too spicy for my preference. Definitely a flavorful whisky, just not necessarily my thing.
 
Robert
Robert,
A bit of peat, a bit of citrus, and very smooth. Unassuming. Not my favorite whiskey, but not because it was bad in any way. It just wasn't "special".
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Very smooth, notes of spice, burnt marshmallow, citrus. A hint of peaty smoke. Very nuanced, not in your face like an Islay. Very good drink!!!
