A fascinating whisky made with Yoichi, Miyagikyou and some 'grain' whisky that isn't really grain - it's malt whisky made in a Coffey still at Miyagikyo! So this is really a vatted malt, or 'blended malt whisky' as we're supposed to call it these days
This is a very moreish whisky; smooth and sweet. It is not a complex whisky but it makes a very enjoyable and affordable everyday whisky

Bit disappointin really - which is a surprise because Nikka 'from the barrel' is by the same firm but SO much better. Fascinating hints of cherry blossom - although a bit firey and short. Vanilla Oak is a bit to domminant.

This whiskey is not too bad but it is not great either. A bit rough and lacks good finish.

I am afraid I will have to disagree most of the reviews.... it is totally out of balance. Way tooo much coconut,,, and coconut,,, and coconuts.... Just not my type... It is just a boring

Definitely one to try! This was my first Japanese whisky and a great introduction. Very drinkable, and an interesting alternative to scotch, add a little water and the falvours develop into something quite unique harking back to its cherry blossom origins. A good price too!

Excellent. Not as sweet as some reviews may suggest. It's spayside-y and it's good. Not as good as "from the barrel" but still - very good.

This is simply really good whisky and should be enjoyed by all. Better than a lot of Scotch that I have had.

A really enjoyable Japanese whisky that is bursting with flavour and is well balanced. Really good value for money too.

A full-flavoured, hot and very drinkable whisky.
