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.
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.

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).
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 ended up with a nice bourbon lineup from the family for Christmas this year. Received that bottle of Veterans Cut from 8 Oaks, two bottles of Old Forester (Original Batch and the 1910), a Brown Sugar Bourbon from Heritage, and a Woodford Reserve. Should keep me golden through the winter!

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.

Longmorn is a current favourite of mine.

I think your Lagavulin bottle is a bit too full :).
You want it? I can’t stand the stuff. Tastes like floor cleaning solution (I imagine). A buddy got it for me about 6 years ago. Only a few sips have ever been taken, on the night I opened it, and realized it tastes like Mr. Clean floor tile bleach.

Well, I am big Islay style stuffs so yesss. It took sometime for me to get used to it to eventually love it. Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Ardbeg, etc. I perhaps have too many bottles. My wife cannot stand it either.

I’ve had that hibiki. One of my all time favorites.
I was lucky to stash 12 and 17 years old version then the price was more realistic yearsss ago. The Harmony used to be like $50 now it is more like $70 depending where you get it from. I should say $50 was the price I paid for the 12 yrs old back then. Crazy how these booze costs these days.

My stash is unfortunately dry. I picked up something else from Suntory recently, some entry level stuff, and it’s just so so. Tastes like a basic Canadian Seagrams or something. But it explains why it was only about $30.
