Top reviews for Ohishi Islay Cask:

― One of the best whiskeys I've tasted. I need to find some locally.

― One of my favorites. Smokiness, but not overly so. Unfortunately, it is expensive where I'm located. I was really happy to be able to sample it.

― It is a classic, elegant, Japanese Whisky that has a delicate birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a long & smoky death with hints of jerky, vanilla & fruit.
