    What’s with all the comments about the screw top? Any Japanese whisky veterans know this is standard. Great value as an entry level Japanese whisky. Light& sweet with none of the peatiness or complex finish that I’ve come to expect with Suntory whiskies. Think Balvenie Doublewood and you won’t go far wrong with this.

    Not my favourite Japanese offering, with shallow flavours compared to others in the price range. It's not that bad, but I wouldn't buy again

    Smooth drink. Strong melon, mango and vanilla taste but doesn’t have that lingering after taste. One of the more affordable Japanese whiskies.

    Subtle, complex. The nose is sweet, like honey. I can really understand the creme brulee that suggested on the box, the burnt sugar, vanilla custard. The palette is interesting. The mint dances on the tip of your tongue, the second it reaches past your lips. The mint explodes, then evaporates into a deep honey. Acacia? A little bit of coconut and vanilla too, not too much. From there, into the finish. Notes of chocolate and bitterness in the form of coffee. The finish lasts long, fresh and light but also deep and dark. Complex, a good whisky for summer nights. Warm and cold. Not good for sitting by the fire, as I am now. But I can appreciate its complexities. Give it a moment to open up and breathe, it's a minor change but an important one.

    A Beautiful Dram. Offer a Dram of this to anyone who 'doesn't like Whisky' and they will be converted. Divine taste.

    Easy going and very approachable. Definitely a first time whiskey friendly. If you prefer something with a lot more character and distinction, this may not be it. I enjoyed it though.

    Nothing special. Given the screw-on cork, it feel cheep.

    Really sorry but this is really Bland with a nasty bitter after taste. The worsed Suntory released in my opinion. Even has a screw on lid. AVOID and invest that bit extra and get yourself a good Yamazaki or Hibiki.

    An exceptional single grain whisky. Bill Murray knew what he was promoting in Lost in Translation for sure. One of the smoothest whiskys that I have ever tasted.

    Refreshing summer dram, not to bad of a price for a Suntory. I'm getting mild clear and smooth creme brulee, spiced oak, deep honey, floral with bittersweet notes towards end.... not for everyone but a nice SUMMER dram mmmmmmm

    Chita is without a doubt my favourite of all the Single Grain Whiskies I have been fortunate enough to sample. It is a superb Whisky to enjoy on a Summer Evening and I hope to always have a bottle on my drinks tray.

    average 4 for me but that may be down to having a hibiki 17 sat next to it. It's nice and light and has some nice notes. One to have in your Japanese whisky collection
