    Was just in Japan so I picked up some Japanese whiskeys. Pretty impressive stuff, a scotch style but not particularly peaty. Specifically, drinking a Suntory Hibiki 17 year old.

    Kind of wish I threw out the extra for the 21 year old over the 17 year old I bought, but my bank account was already looking pretty damaged after this trip so I thought a bit of frugality was called for :)

    Only heard and tried a few but I will say good things about Japanese Scotch so if anyone else has a chance to try do it. I normally live in Thailand or Singapore so you can bet I will be trying to buy a few duty free to keep in my cabinet. In Singapore they have a famous Scotch lounge I have tried a lot of the Scotches there but to be honest I never taken notes because I am a bourbon man at heart needless to say I have sampled a lot of fine Scotch and the Japanese versions are up there with the best of note.

    My cousin works in a boutique bottle shop, he came home with a bottle of it last weekend, we polished it off between three, and even girls tried it and loved it.

    I bought a bottle and took to a mates place last night - again, everybody loved it.

    Craps all over Captain Morgan or Sailor Jerry (which are quality anyway).. And the bottle is awesome :D

    Not as hoppy? The torpedo is far, far hoppier - it's an Extra IPA as opposed to a Pale ale.

    Top drop :)

    I don't find it so. Perhaps the torpedo is smoother, mellower or sth. The bite on the PA is much sharper.

    We're on the same page though - both bloody good beers.:thumbup:

    It opened my eyes too a whole new world of American beers when I travelled there in the early nineties.

    They still make that? Maybe because I live in QLD but I have not seen that in years. On topic: Making a return to scotch and having a Johnnie Walker Black & Coke with tons of ice.
