— Simply delicious... if you describe it, you do it a disservice.

— This is a wonderful whisky. If I could find it more easily I would recommend this to everyone. It's astonishingly full-bodied and smooth, yet delicately smoky and savory. Good stuff, bar none.

Smooth as heck! Perfect amount of smoke for me. Great Japanese Whiskey for sure

It's ok. The single Malt 12 year that you cannot find anymore was much better,

Would give it a 10, but this isn't the same as the 10 year age statement version. Still, I LOVE this whisky and it's a great replacement while we can't obtain the age statement version. Citrus and smokey (light when first opening the bottle, but more pronounced after the bottle sits for a couple months), with some vanilla/cream as well. This is absolutely my favorite distillery and one of my favorite whiskies. For the price, this is incredible. Also, not sure why other reviewers say it's "not as smooth" as other whiskies. If this isn't smooth, then idk why you are drinking whisky to begin with. It has a very slight "bite" but it's warming and perfect for the style.

Brandon,
Zesty smoke flavor is very forward here. Maybe because I tried it after some age statement Japanese whiskys, but the young age really showed. Not as much depth or linger. Made me miss the yoichi 12.

Ivan,
Easily one of my favorites. Very lightly peated, so don't expect anything like a laphroaig or an ardbeg. Malt, cereal, a light sweetness, the smallest hint of salt and peat.

Sarah,
A bit light and lacking complexity but easy to drink; a nice balance of citrus and smoky notes.

Not as smooth as the yama or hibiki

Smokey, vanilla, creamy. Hints of campbeltown with peat and smoke.

Thomas,
Loved the smoky, wood barrel flavor that dances around the fruity and floral notes of this excellently crafted whiskey

Dat,
I would give this bottle a generous rating of an 8.0 I could definitely smell the peat, and there is very strong smoke presence, but there is something lacking. Sure, there is a tiny hint of candied honey and there is a slight salty flavor in the after taste, especially around the lips, but the fruitiness escapes me. If you like peat, this one may be up your alley. The finish is medium and not very complex.

My favorite of the Japanese whiskeys. I would have guessed this was an Islay scotch. Rich flavor of smoke, seaweed and oak. New go-to Japanese whiskey.

Smokey earthy goodness with a dash of sweetness that is smooth and wonderful.
