Released in Spring 2014, this is one of two Distiller's Reserve single malt whiskies from Suntory in Japan. This single malt from the Yamazaki distillery is jam-packed with superb red berry notes, gained from the whisky being matured in Bordeaux wine casks and Sherry casks. It also features malt matured in Mizunara casks, adding subtle fragrant oak notes.

Unique combination taste of honey, citrus, pear, and ginger.
Chita Single Grain Whisky 43%alc.390 CZK
Japanese single grain whisky from the Chita distillery, one of the selections of fantastic distilleries owned by Suntory. This is their main expression - a whisky matured in a combination of Sherry, bourbon, and (interestingly) wine casks.
Hibiki Japanese harmony 43% alc490 CZK
Kirin Fuji-Sanroku 50% alc.490 CZK
An original Japanese whisky in its blend and gourmand at the palate. Beautiful notes of cooked fruits and cereals will recall the American barrels used.
Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt 43% alc.420,- CZK
A non-age-statement expression of Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt whisky, named after the company's founder, Masataka Taketsuru. It features plenty of whisky from the Miyagikyo distillery, as well as percentage of malt matured in Sherry casks to give it a rich, spiced nose.
Nikka Taketsuru 17 Y.O. 43% alc.990,- CZK
Pungent and oily nose with lots of toasty, sweet oak. Some malty notes begin to appear and the oak takes on a sawdusty, mature demeanour. With time some spices amble through. The palate is gentle and soft with citrus, mature honey and gentle smoke and spices. It takes its time to unfold. Medium length with quite a hot but spicy finish.
Nikka Taketsuru 21 Y.O. 43% alc.1690,- CZK
Taketsuru 21 was crowned World's Best Blended Malt Whisky at the 2010 World Whiskies Awards. It is really a fabulous whisky, and for those of you who enjoyed the brilliant 17 year old this offers just a bit more richness, a little of more chocolate and coffee.
Nikka from the barrel 51,4% alc.390 CZK
Whisky from the Barrel is one of the greatest value for money whiskies in the world. An incredible dram from Nikka, so much power! We can't recommend this enough. Medium-body with good balance. There are notes of cut flowers and fresh fruits, spice and a little oak. Full-bodied and punchy. There is plenty of winter spice and toffee, a little caramel and vanilla and a good mouthful of fruit. Long, warming and fruity with a little oaken spice.
