    Can I play? I had high hopes for this one. First impressions are that it's smooth and a good sipper. It lacks a bit of the character that I was hoping for given it's claimed roots in Japan and Kentucky. I'm going to give it another taste tomorrow night. We'll see how the second date goes.

    It is unique. I took at is a Japanese and Kentucky blend when I first learned of it. But it's a blend of Kentucky bourbon by a Japanese blender. I see the angle they were going for but it lost some appeal when I saw that. Still a really good drinker to me though and I'll get a couple more to have on hand. I kinda see it as a unique Bookers batch.

    :cheers:

    I just popped of bottle of this Monday after staring at it on the shelf for a few months. Definitely has the typical Jim Beam flavor profile imo. Kinda underwhelming. Will it drink yes. But I would rather have 4R SB, BT, and others at a cheaper price.

    I dig the stuff. It drinks closer to a Japanese whisky than a bourbon, to me. The wine and sherry casks add a little of the delicacy that Japanese whiskies tend to have. Given the price point, Fukuyo didn't exactly have the choicest of barrels to blend from, but the result is still plenty pleasant. I get a ton of black cherry on it.

    Not one of my favorites, but one I wouldn't mind grabbing again, too.

    I hope they keep this thing going with different versions of Legent down the road. I'd buy in on a sub-$40 ongoing experiment like that.

    Apparently this is on the Total Wine allocated counter, now. What the hell is going on?!?!

    Maybe the last bottle I have for a while because, while it's quite good, I'm not going to play the hype game and I won't pay over $32.

    Depends on the High West particular version you try. I am not fond of some of their limited editions - or at least the flavors might not be what be what I am in the mood for. But Campfire has always treated me right. Different people get different hints of flavors from it that are stronger than others. It's all subjective and depends on what you are into I guess.

    Stumbled on some W12, if any one is interested... I passed on it, mainly because I have more sense than money haha! (Potato quality, but $330 bottle)

    They also had some WSR - going for $74, Eagle Rare for $80, and some Old Fitz bib going for a cool $499... Needless to say, I laughed my ass off as I walked out empty handed!

    Huh. I vaguely remember seeing a peat week bottle near me a few days ago and thinking nothing of it. Never heard of it. Something special?

    It's the 5th time that they've done it, but it is a limited release from Westland - they make some of the best, if not THE best, American Single Malt whisky. They have some different standard expressions that are very good. Worth checking out.

    Their Peat Week 'experiments' are only available in limited quantities and have a bit of a cult following. First bottle for me to own. I've heard this isn't too peated, but I'm looking forward to trying it out.

    Balvenie has a 14 year Peat Week. They also have a "Week of Peat" (to make it more confusing).

    There is also one from Blackadder called Peat Reek. We tried it during the BBQ/whiskey video shoot ;). It is outstanding as well.

    I don't really care for drinking anymore, but my wife got me to try The Nikka 12 which is a fine Japanese whiskey. Ive got to say...its extremely smooth and tastes just as good. I also like Hibiki Japanese whiskey.
