Not whiskey but not bad
As a previous reviewer wrote, it does taste like cheap mescal as soon as you drink it after opening BUT a couple of days and sips later, the flavors start to come out. It's something to enjoy over time and not a drink to indulge in. It's not whiskey though. It's made out of rice.

Save your money, buy something else.
I trusted the good reviews and was unpleasantly surprised. Very plant tasting. It actually tasted more like cheap mescal than whisky. I get a bit of the rice/sake notes in the background, but the main taste is medicinal and ethanol mixed with a cheap mescal or tequila. The screw cap should have tipped me off to the fact that it was not a whisky worthy of more than $40. I've heard there are many fine Japanese whiskeys, but this is definitely not one of them. Save your money for other products. I would not even spend $15 on another bottle of Kikori.

A Different Japanese Whiskey
Absolutely loved this whiskey. Had it recommended from the first time I went into my local liquor store. Been pushing it off because the color seemed not very aged and thought it'd be one dimensional. WAS I WRONG!!!! On the nose: Pear, fresh fruit, apple, fresh cut grass. Taste: Grass, floral, hint of white rice, sea salt, honey, and fresh cucumber. Finish: spring water, jicama, and light honey sweetness. This is relatively young whiskey. However, it is phenomenal. Definitely a recommendation for your new to whiskey friends and your experienced taste buddies.

Light and delicate - great for a mixed drink!
What a gem! I typically stick to American malt whiskeys, but I decided to branch out and try this new Japanese-produced, rice-based whiskey. The distillation process is interesting, and the result is a smooth and balanced whiskey, with a distinct and delicate terroir. Sipped straight from the glass, or mixed in a cocktail, this whiskey is a winner!

Excellent Japanese Whiskey
My girlfriend and I tried this last night at Nobu. We love whiskey and try everything once. Kikori was incredible, We really enjoyed the brightness and flavor profile. It is delicate but complex with a great clean finish. It paired well with our food.
