Japanese Whisky is spelled without the “e” and draws inspiration from Scotish whiskey.  In 1918, Masataka Taketsuru traveled to Scotland to learn whiskey making and returned to Japan years later to start his own distillery.  Japanese whisky has developed its own unique styles and often incorporate honeysuckle, toffee, oranges, and acetone. Japanese whiskey is rare and often expensive but well worth it.  The water is very pure, made mostly from melted snow from Mt. Fuji. The climate in Japan is warmer in the summer and creates a unique flavor profile.

Overnight delivery didn't happen

Paid for overnight delivery (to receive on Friday)....didn't receive until Monday. All showed up well packaged and in good shape, but was disappointed it didn't show up as promised. It was not a cheap premium paid.
