'Nuff said.  I'd rather be lucky than good!   😂  

PSA:  If you are ever in Tokyo and asked if you would like a Fukano by the bartender. The proper gaijin response to get it on the house is, “Fuckin-A!”, along with thumbs up sign...   

No, none of those are worth the purchase at those prices, IMO. A few years ago when I discovered Japanese whisky, I purchased Nikka Taketsuru 12 Yr (now the NAS above), Hibiki 12 Yr (now the NAS abov

Do you have his/hers bunkers. Or is just her bunker that you borrow from, from time to time?😛

Don't forget about the trash can by the recliner, behind the dining room door, and the places in the basement full of spider webs.

Gifted to me by a kind but clueless to  whisk(e)y friend.  If I wanted to duplicate the tasting notes of this fine beverage, I'd pick a bottom shelf vodka. 'Product of Japan', 'Imported' what else do you need to know.  Regifting it would probably create an enemy!  Beware!!!!

If you didn't know, "sensei" means teacher in Japanese.  I'm guessing this bottle is teaching you not but it again.  😆

I picked up a Nikka Taketsuru pure malt today.  Enjoyed it at a bar recently so decided to pick up a bottle for myself.

Not cheap for me means not buying! I haven’t seen anything coming out of Japan recently that is worth the cost, including the current less expensive releases and brands..
 

I will stick to slowly drinking the last of my aged stated Yamazaki and Nikka from back in the day of reasonable prices until they are gone. And then I won’t worry about Japanese whisky again until the price comes back to reasonable. Presuming it ever does.

Sounds like the usual mix of Japanese grain, some Japanese malt and imported whiskies blended together..

I'm following the same plan but I'm down to only a Nikka SFTB.  So I guess I'll be going on a Japanese whisky fast for awhile.
