    Guys, stay on the carpet, please. It's all about the taste of a whisky, not whether you like the label.

    I rate this whisky on my own taste. I don't care about the label or the piece of paper on the bottle.

    The alcohol has a stronger effect on the nose than stated. Sweet honey, light green meadow, a few herbs, then fruit again. The nose is monotonous and boring. You can feel the youth and the applied finish.

    In terms of taste, it completely disappoints me, you can still feel some wood. Fresh green apples come with water. You can guess some plum jam from the sherry finish.

    Unspectacular finish, very short with water.

    Label Top, Malt disappointed me. Sorry

    Price 99.90 € (as of 01/12/2020)

    "Due to the atrocities committed by the Japanese in World War II under this flag, this flag is controversial. The lack of historical processing of the role of Japan during the Second World War and its responsibility on the official side contributes to the controversial attitude of other peoples towards the use of the Kyokujitsuki. The Kyokujitsuki triggers subliminal memories of the imperial Japanese armed forces and their war crimes in the Pacific War among many peoples of Asia. Outside of Japan, this flag is therefore still regarded by many as a symbol of Japanese imperialism in Asia. "

    "Around 1870, when the Meiji government replaced the shogunate, the commanders began looking for a specific war flag, because until then the samurai were the defenders of the country and carried the flags of their respective daimyates."

    "The motif was also very popular with the Kamikaze pilots and was not infrequently painted on the respective aircraft or a small flag was worn as a headband. They were carried by the units on land and at sea."

    "Even in World War II, some thoughts of Bushidō influenced the actions of Japanese soldiers. Many samurai bloodlines, such as the House of Honda, still have a great influence in Japanese economics and politics today."

    "A new series of noble bottlings from Andrew Symington's wooden treasure was raised to the aristocratic warrior status with expressive labels. Each of them personalized with illustrated heroic figures that stand out in black and white against the rays of the" rising sun ", as the Japanese military flag is called . "
