    In the movie "Lost in Translation" , Bill Murray's character is in Japan to pitch Toki.

    Sorry, but y'all can have my share. I never really got the taste for the stuff though I could pound down some Jack or Jim to be sociable. Regular old Bud gets me in all the trouble I want.

    Toki isn't bad for the price but plenty of other just as good if not better options in the same price range. Even 5 years ago Japanese whisky like Yamazaki 12 was considered on par with basic Scotch single malts like Glenlivet 12 and cost $30-$40. Then Japanese Whisky became popular and they ran low on supply(since there was such little demand in the past that most distilleries basically stopped making whisky) and suddenly people are all excited when they can actually find a bottle of Yamazaki 12 for $100-$200 or Hibiki Harmony for $70-$100. For what's basically a copy of $40 Scotch.

    Very unique flavor, distilled from rice, not to bad

    Not bad, good flavor but, kind of over priced at $70

    Pretty smooth and and a bargain at $35

    But definitely my favorite that is fairly easy to find is the Nikka Coffey Grain
