    Running out of Balvenie 12YO Doublewood. Might get another bottle since it was so good. Anything at costco similar in price/quality?

    The last bottle of dublewood I picked up was at Costco for $60. They don't always have it but at that price it is a deal.

    As for the Japanese whiskeys I would tend to lean towards the Toki by Suntory, again nice light easy drink.

    I found this to be a bit "boring" exceptionally smooth, but lacked character. Kind of like a Camry XLE Still, an exceptionally nice easy drinking whiskey, enjoyable without doubt. The Suntory Japanese Harmony recently won our "blind testing" whiskey night a few months back.

    I bought Nirasaki Japanese Whisky for $30 at Highlander a few weeks back after trying it at Gorilla Whale and it was pretty great sipper. Smooth, but with a bit of character. I think its the best whiskey at that price point for sure - although, the bottle is pretty cheap and unappealing (funny how that effects your experience)

    I'll be headed to Japan in October. Going to try and start acquiring some Japanese Whisky tastes before the trip. I'll try the Nirasaki. Any other suggestions?

    Just mowed through a bottle of the Kirkland 20yo Speyside this weekend. While it is excellent, it's nowhere near as good as it should have been. The Sherry finishing is a bit overpowering and it's just not as buttery as it should be considering the quality of some of this brand's cheaper whiskey. I really liked it; but, it should have been better.
    I don't see the Kirkland 16 at stores anymore, but I think it was way better and way cheaper than this one.
    Won't buy again. Glad it was a gift!
