Tory's Extra Honey

Torys is a brand of whiskey made by Suntory. It's ok, tastes like regular whiskey, anyway. Their Torys Extra costs about 450 yen for a half-pint bottle. If you like whiskey, you're better off getting a 700ml bottle of Johnny Walker for 1400 yen at the Daiei department store. What we have here, though, is Torys Extra Honey. I was wondering what this tastes like, but I waited too long and it disappeared from nearly every store in the city. By accident, I found a FamilyMart on the other side of downtown that still had a bottle and picked it up. It's about 500 yen ($5 USD) for 300ml (0.6 pints) and is 20% alcohol (40 proof). It tastes like honey-flavored throat lozenges. If you mix it with Calpis Water, you can't taste the alcohol at all, but it'll still hit you pretty good.
