This shows the importance of preference in selecting a drink, as all three of these have fallen off my radar and having bought them. I still have half a bottle of the Chivas Regal 12 and won't be replacing it. The JW Black I gave away, and the Grand Old Parr that I picked up in Japan was a one time only purchase.
What is most interesting about your post is that you like them so well and it makes one reflect when they read such a differing impression.
Whisky has turned out to be quite a different journey than I could have originally imagined.

It is pretty easy to find in Japan, as are quite an array of other scotches and bourbons not so easily found stateside.
