No, never heard of it. But I looks interesting, and I enjoy Japanese whisky...guess we have the Irish to thank for that. I’ll have to try and score some.Have you tried Nikka Whisky From The Barrel? I quite like it but cut it with a little water - it's 51.4% alcohol by volume and has some burn served neat.
May have to wait a while. They filled two barrels in 2016 and only bottled one of the barrels this year. All of the 172 bottles were gone in about 30 minutes, but I heard they may bottle the other barrel next year. Pretty good chance that they will be gone instantly too. They donated a large portion of each bottle sale to fund a local veteran’s memorial so there was quite a lot of publicity prior to the release in November.I will have to seek that one out. Lately I have been on a "bottled in bond" exploration (which applies to other liquors besides Whiskey btw).
It was the Scots, Taketsuru learned whisky distillation in Scotland, at Longmorn distillery. He married a Scottish woman and returned to Japan to build Suntory's first distillery. He later left and started his own whisky business - Nikka.No, never heard of it. But I looks interesting, and I enjoy Japanese whisky...guess we have the Irish to thank for that.
