    The last time Nikka Taketsuru cost $69.99 was...never. This site links to the 10 yr. old version of Nikka on caskers, very misleading.

    I am sure that some of these Japanese Whiskey's are quite good in their own right. I have heard great things about Nikka Coffey product at a local "tasting."

    My problem is two fold with this article. First, as someone who writes for a living, it is obvious to me that these "product observations," were either written by someone who was searching quite hard for the most over-used descriptors they could find and/or they were written in Japanese while attempting to entice the English reading market. My point is, I can't remember the last time I read a product review that I honestly felt was written by an objective taster of the libation as opposed to a "PR," release from the distiller!

    My second comment is more to the point. When did liquor distilled from rice become whiskey? I am sorry but as a chemist who specializes in technical writing....and who enjoys whisky's, whiskey's and bourbons.....I am confused. Can someone please explain this to me?

    Cheers!
