I’ve wanted to try this for a year! Does anyone have any opinions on it?
Pretty much a standard price for this....

Er really... Did you check the camels..
It's gorgeous. Has been £35 before but normally about £45. Well worth it. I'll have two, thank you very much

£25.72 + shipping

Not sure if the total will be more expensive than £34.99 at Amazon, but maybe worth looking at if you are interested.

Never ordered from them but, yes, all part of the shipping arrangements; I expect so.

Have you checked?

I just tried to buy it. The shipping is £36 ontop making it £62. And you'd likely be stung for import duty ontop.

Not even the 8% discount code would cover the difference!

OK, fair enough. Worth looking at alternate suppliers though; not just relying on Amazon (UK).
Can I ask any Japanese whisky lovers. How does this Chita compare to the Toki?

As I bought the Toki last year and its ok but nothing special.

It's one of my favourite summer time whiskies. It's a single grain that's light and delicate, it's quite sweet with a honey profile and very easy to drink - it's not a rich and indulgent whisky more subtle and refreshing.

Drinking it now, very nice. Would be perfect for someone who isn't an experienced whisky drinker, if you know what I mean?

Just looked and mine is the Distillers Reserve - wonder if it's the same whisky?

Does anyone know how this compares to yamazaki or 7 year old hibiki?
Is it made in Scotland?
Lovely whisky. But then most single malts are like sex, you wouldn't complain much if you had it.

Unless your name is Virginia Roberts

This is a correct description! Just had some earlier and definitely not tasty and definitely not worth £35
skgwho07/12/2019 21:53

Generally Japanese whiskey isn't...


Yeah, seems an idiotic question, but you never know what point people are trying to make on this site.
Good value at this price. But it dropped a couple of quid lower late in December last year so might be worth waiting if you have some in the cellar already.

Another appalling comment. It’s probably best that people stick to talking about good deals on items for sale rather than making jokes and remarks about the victims of alleged criminal activity.

These are both entry level whiskies from Suntory. The Chita is a single grain whisky so is sweet honey and vanilla. The Toki is a blend whisky and as it has malt content has toffee flavours. The Chita is a better whisky in my opinion but not worth more than £40. Definitely worth getting one at this price.
koparanov07/12/2019 16:10

It's a nice whisky with lots of honey and vanilla. A little alcohol vapour due to it being a grain whisky but not bad at all. However, there are better whiskies out there at this price as you're paying a premium for what it is. There are lots of great whiskies made in the UK in this price range but you won't find many single grain whiskies, so it's worth a go from that point of view.
mman200507/12/2019 20:25

This is a single grain whisky so the flavour profile and level of complexity isn't there like a decent blend or single malt. It has its own merits but it's cheaper than both of those for a reason.

What is an 'experienced' whisky drinker? An alcoholic? Someone who works for a distillery tasting whisky? Unless people are either of those then nobody is an experienced whisky drinker

I usually try 200-250 different whiskies throughout the year. About 150 of those are over a 2 day period at the London whisky show (Lots of spittooning involved!).

I would say I'm fairly experienced, but by no means any sort of expert.

Defo no alcoholic, I'm not drinking whisky to get drunk. I enjoy the different tastes and profiles of different whiskies.

Maybe someone who has tasted a more than a few different bottles and not just a bottle of Bells at Christmas? Someone with a bit of experience of drinking whisky will know what he/she likes and will not make as many mistakes when buying new bottles. Whisky is not like vodka - but of course you know that

Of course I know that, I love to try many different whiskys, I just see the 'experienced' thing thrown around alot in the comments pages and wondered what people actually think experienced means as some comments I see people make, it's as if they think they're better than everyone else and some of them think they're special just because they've tried a few, people will also comment saying 'this whisky tastes horrible and that such and such whisky is far superior' it's all about personal tastes

So would you give someone who has had little whisky experience a bottle of Laga 16, or a bottle of this Chita?
"Experienced" means to have tried new experiences - ie drinking different whisky styles. Are you honestly trying to say that you can't be experienced unless you're an alcoholic?

You seem to have a chip on your shoulder for some reason.

The London Whisky show is imo, the best money you'll ever spend on whisky. It enables you to identify styles of whiskies you like, try new whiskies that you would have never tried before. It really helps in getting you to understand your palate and with identifying different flavours in whiskies. It's not cheap, £110 for One day day weekend ticket or £180 for both weekend days - but where else could you try 70+ drams in a day for around £100?!

The part about the alcoholic which I didn't even mention in my last reply was an obvious joke , I wouldn't give anyone a bottle of either , I'd drink them myself, and I'm not sure where you got the chip on my shoulder from, I think you need to sit back and chill out with a 40 year old dram

Play nice, guys! Everyone is just learning. No point in turning harmless miscommunications into harmful internet arguments. I'm guessing we're all here because we like whisky deals (y).

What are your favourite current whiskies?

My go to dram is currently Sonoma Cherrywood Rye - very different tasting whisky from what I usually drink (Sherried Speyside's). Infact enjoyed it so much that I finished the bottle in less than a month and had to buy another! Which for me is ridiculously fast - For reference I've had some bottles open since 2014!
