Konnichiwa and Oy! MacNippon Whisky here to blow your mind!

Scottish and Japanese Whisky are like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. First, there was only one, but when the second came, she learned everything from the first one. So there were two. It's like Highlander, but in reverse. Anyway, Chivas Regal, a powerhouse of Scotch Whisky from Speyside with its roots back in 1801, decided to pay homage to Japanese Whisky makers and drinkers. Japanese Whisky came around when a Nippon dude went to Scotland and learned the craft, while Chivas Regal's Mizunara is a result of a trip that Master Distiller Colin Scott took to Japan. And it's a helluva of a result:

It's a wonderful blend of malt and grain Whiskies, some of which have spent some time in Mizunara oak! If you couldn't care less about trees: Mizunara oak is insanely rare and its impact on Whisky makes some people scream in excitement. So not only will you celebrate the amazing creation that is Japan, but also try an absolutely extravagant Whisky blend. It's delicious, delightful and it's simply something a Whisky-lover must have. Imitation may be the highest form of flattery, but sometimes the master must flatter the student.

Kanpai and Slainte!

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Abel
Abel,
Such a wonderful dram. You really get a nice carmel on the palate that is round and long. The finish is wonderful. This is one of those beautiful whiskies that you can nose and nose and nose and...

Dat,
I really like this bottle! It's better than an 8, but less than a 9. I reserve scores of 9 and above for spirits that wow me, like the Tamdhu Batch Strength, or Hibiki, or Macallan Rare Cask. So, although this item is not deserving of a 9, it is still one of my go-to elixir when there is company and the company doesn't have a clue between single malt and blended :-) This bottle is inexpensive (< $50) but the taste is just superb! I love that Chivas experimented with the mizunara oak, because it really does bring out a much nicer character to this expression. I honestly would prefer this over its older/age-statement brethrens (12 and even 18).

Levi,
It is not a full on Japanese whisky, but Chivas Regal made a brilliant blend that I can taste the Mizunara in. I was very pleasantly suprised by how much like a good Japanese whisky this tastes.

Zane,
The aroma is fantastic. Good neat but a little ice (gasp) opens it up beautifully.
 
Matt
Matt,
Smooth. Easy drinking neat. Overall, a decent scotch whisky for the price and a way to try mizunara oak flavors affordably. I did a neat 2 oz. side-by-side comparison with the Kaiyo Mizunara Oak Cask Strength and I like the Kaiyo better because it was more interesting and flavorful. The Kaiyo is also twice the price.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This is a very smooth blend. I must say Chivas has created a solid product here. Nothing superbly special but at the 50 dollar price point it's well worth it. I've not had the pleasure to try the Japanese whiskies but if this is made to pay homage to their craft then I can't wait to go down that rabbit hole.

Jasson,
10 stars from me. I was unprepared for just how delicious this whisky is.. Will definitely be keeping this stocked regularly on the home bar. Hoping I can locate it in some nearby liquor stores.
 
Warren
Warren,
Silk! Surprisingly smooth sweetness. Yes I'd purchase again especially at that price.
 
John
John,
Distinctly different from regular Chivas. Glad I tried it. A bit more complex that generic Chivas (Once upon a time my first Scotch).

Nicholas,
Excellent blend!
 
Steven
Steven,
Excellent. Nose is standard scotch but the first taste is very sweet. Vanilla and sugar a little creamy. Then the finish is back to scotch. For the price I am very pleased.
