Re: Recommendation of whiskey according to tastes

Yamazaki 12 - current batch is the best I've tasted
Hakushu 12 - Great easy drinker still with plenty character.

You should find both of these smooth and refined with some of the other characteristics you enjoy.

You'll get plenty of recommendations on Scottish Whisky from others here.

Re: Highland Park 18 Alternative

Why does it have to be a match for HP 18 which IMO is good but not great? Why not broaden your horizens? Why not suggestions of stuff that may not be an exact match or a match at all that are in your price range but possibly better than HP 18? I recommend Hakushu 12 now that it's available in the US...

Re: Favorite Distillery?

Yamazaki Although I prefer the core range from Yoichi, Yamazaki can and does make almost any style of whisky and is the most innovative of the Japanese distilleries. I'd also say they are the most Japanesey of all the distilleries there. Unfortunetely much of this is never scene outside of Japan. I ...

Re: What did you drink last night?

Can't edit post, not sure why I wrote rive and I hear it's not a word :oops: It's ok. :thumbsup: And I absolutely agree about the Yama '84. Great whisky but not $1000 worth. I'll qualify my statement. I don't believe any whisky is worth $1000. Sometimes however, that is what we are asked to pay.

Re: What is your most recent (whisky) purchase.

Well G I'll let you know when it arrives. My experience is that Chichibu whisky matures extremely fast, a conbination of climate and meticulous cask selection amongst other things. So fast in fact that Akuto-sans biggest issue will be managing this stuff when it gets to 10 years plus.
