    This is my first experience of Japanese whisky, and I am very impressed.

    Gorgeous and velvety smooth. To my mind tastes more like an Armagnac than a whiskey, perhaps as a result of aging in those 3 types of cask.

    Tis is just a below average single malt comparing to the Scottish single malt. Taste is similar to any premium range Indian made foreign whisky like 100 piper and teacher's . Balantines taste better than chita

    I live in Tokyo and this is my daily drinker. Great neat and with a splash of water.

    It’s a bad whisky because of a screw on cap? Get real, a screw on cap does not make the whisky – it’s fine.

    A little splash of water really opens up the flavour. None of the notes are particularly intense, but they work in concert wonderfully. Will have this as a regular in my liquor cabinet.

    I got this on one of my travels in Tenoji, Osaka. Excellent for highball! Refreshing on those summer nights. Excellent with Yakitori.

    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.
