Sadashi Japanese Whiskey

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)
Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel.

SJ's Rating-  Bottom Shelf 
Worst Japanese Whiskey I have ever had. Tastes like bad tap water.
Occasion- Movie night(Watched "Blackthorn", an excellent modern-day western movie!)
SJ's Pro tip- Use it for cocktails
Cocktail- Highball
Feel- Bitter

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)
Yes, I know most things can be found on the internet but not this one. I cannot make heads or tails out of the description. The bottle label says "Made in Japan" and also says "Bottled in Spain". Go figure 😑. This is a whiskey that is made for big box stores like Total Wine just for the sake of it. 
This expression claims to have been finished in Mirunara oak. This is a type of oak tree found exclusively in Japan and itself takes about 200 years to grow. Does not capture the essence of Japanese whisky which should be smooth, flavorful, and long finish.
