Nice knowledge signalling. You didn't actually answer the question though. If I extrapolate from what you said, you think the Japanese would spell it the way Americans spell it. Except Americans spell it "whiskey", and you can see right there in the picture that the Japanese spell it "whisky". Japanese whisky is modelled on Scotch, so they use the Scottish spelling.

Negative . Scottish whiskey is much better than this .

Ah, here's good ol' Sam to crap on another post about Japanese whisky. If only he'd ever tried any of it.

On the contrary,my Japanese motorbike and televisions work very well and I imagine their whisky is excellent too.

Not true at all. At the end of the day it's just distillation and storing it in barrels, plenty of mediocre stuff comes from Scotland as well as great stuff, a lot is down to personal taste.

Whisky itself seems to be getting more and more expensive, something unusual like this, this is certainly a bargain.
Excellent Whisky and an excellent price. Heat added.

I see Sad Sam can't control himself again.....

Is this comment for controversy? Some of the best whisky I have tasted has been from outside Scotland - and I am no stranger to excellent Scotch.
very nice whisky at a nice price - heat added. i'll be on the hunt for a bottle

Riskey
That pesky E does it again.
33235454-IctPz.jpgThank you! I took last bottle yesterday at 9:15pm
What a great time to not have stopped drinking! Sainsbury's will be fortunate if I haven't gone down there in a few minutes and kicked their doors in.

One of the most clueless posts from some one that regularly trolls this forum with inaccurate information. A friend of mine who knows more than most of us about whisky (since I'm talking about Japanese whisky this is the correct spelling) had me try some Japanese whisky and said it's absolutely fabulous. I have to agree it was without doubt some of the best whisky I had ever tried and believe me when a good friend owns a whisky shop you definitely try them out. Nikka, Yamazaki, Hibiki you'll be lucky to be able to afford to try some of their best in your lifetime sam because you're ignorant of the facts that these are world class. You'll never ever try a 30 year old Hibiki, there's nothing like it, it's whisky on another level.

One thing sam_of_london does is post nonsense and never reply to anyone that counters his nonsense, absolutel proof he's a childish troll. I feel sorry for other members of this forum who have to put up with his nonsense day in and day out.

Japanese whisky is fantastic and has been around since 1870, so they have 138 years of experience over you sam, that's for damn certain.

Knowledge signalling? Is that a thing? The false-economy phrase "virtue signalling" is bad enough as it is.

There wasn't any need to be so snarky towards OP either way.

Although yes, sam_of_london is either ignorant, a childish troll or both.
Cheers its a good whiskey and a great price.
Must be selling it out as it was also £33.75 in coleraine.

As was the glenfiddich IPA £33.75
