Is there anyone out there a Whisky/Shōchū Lover

Post by Wade » 05 Jul 2015 12:02

any Whisky lover out there beside focusing on watches?

For me, I prefer Japanese Whisky and 1 or 2 serving to help us to release stress.
Yesterday, I went to Isetan Orchard and intend to hoot Nikka from The Barrel but it out of stock.
There are many choice like Hakushu (1973), Hibiki, Kakubin (1937), Yamazaki (one of the best whisky since 1923) but I still prefer Nikka (1934) and bought the Black Nikka Special Whisky.

Nikka Black Special Whisky 700ml 42%
Nicknamed as "Bearded Black" Been available since 1965
A sweet, nutty aroma with a hint of vanilla will first hit the nose when the bottle is being opened.
As you savor this remarkable whisky, you will notice that the sweetness will gradually diminish, replaced slowly by spices and salt, along with a small but of bitter notes of chocolate.
A wonderful offering of sweet and spicy notes.
Overall, a lovely blended whisky that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home.
