Suntory Hakushu 12 Year Old Japanese Peated Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Back In Stock!
Suntory Hakushu 12 Year Old Japanese Peated Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This golden, silky single malt mingles vanilla and honey with fresh apple and pear aromas. These notes are echoed on the palate alongside a wave of peat smoke. Add a splash of water to offset the modest but persistent alcohol heat and further coax out the fruity-smoky flavors. (KN)" (12/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Although only two years older, this expression of Hakushu — the first to be launched in the U.S. — shows a fleshier side to the distillery’s wares. While it has retained the freshness of the 10 year old, it shows more pineapple and grapefruit on the nose, with a littl ...Read More »

Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The newest blended whisky offering from Hibiki is burnished gold in the glass and has a bold aroma that mixes vanilla, fresh pear and a hint of smoke. The smokiness comes forward at the first sip, wrapping around a core of oak and vanilla custard and finishing long, with a mouthwatering bitter chocolate note. *Best of 2016* (KN)" (3/2016) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Poised and complex, with typically lifted fruitiness: strawberry ice cream, pineapple, peach, balanced by delicate oak, bamboo shoot-like delicacy, then lemon. The palate is more rounded than that very forward nose, with ...Read More »

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Malt Whisky (750ml)

Whisky Advocate: "Now a hugely welcome part of the core range, this whisky—made in Coffey stills at the Miyagikyo distillery—uses 100% malted barley as its base. The nose is all tinned peach, tropical fruit juice, and baked banana, with a surprising green celery note, coconut, and sherbet. The palate is silky, with some chocolate, biscuity oak, and orange blossom honey. Water brings those green notes forward to add freshness to the peach cobbler sweetness. The grain revolution builds.

Nikka "Taketsuru" Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The luxe aroma mixes rich butterscotch and apple sweetness. On the palate, this whisky is light and gentle, interspersing fruit and smoke and finishing with a spark of cinnamon heat. Add a splash of water; recommended for sipping. (KN)" (3/2016) K&L Notes: So you've heard that Japanese whisky is quite popular these days. You're right; it is. But while the mainstream choice is always going to be Suntory, it's Nikka that is quietly bringing the goods to your local boutique retailer. Founded by Masataka Taketsuru in 1936, the Nikka whisky company is one of Japan's best ... Read More »

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "Sweet, with subtle, crisp, nutty oak, then comes fudge, ripe banana, and peach. The overall effect is like eating vanilla ice cream with toffee fudge and hazelnut sprinkles. The structure is thick and physical, the palate sweet and quite fat, with light hints of raspberry, fruit salad. A jag of acidity freshens the delivery on the finish. With water there’s more toffee, and it becomes slightly more yielding, with less oak. For me the gold standard of grain. (DB, Fall 2015)" 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The name of this whisky has nothing to do with coffee—rather, it's named for a type ...Read More »

Nikka "Yoichi" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

92 points Whisky Advocate: "Yoichi age statements are gone for now, but if the whisky stays this good, I can live with that. Black earthy peat, smoldering fires, a turned-out pocket of briny seashells, whole lime, lemon twist, sugared orange, ground ginger, and licorice. Silky smooth, with light, fruity sweetness developing into tangy Spangles, kiwi, and lime juice. The smoky peat is the weft woven through the fruit structure’s warp. The finish is insanely long: menthol, peat, and leather. (JM, Winter 2016)" K&L Notes: Winner of the Whisky Advocate's 2016 "Japanese Whisky of the Year" award! Ni... Read More »

Nikka "Miyagikyo" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Back In Stock!
Nikka "Miyagikyo" Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Nikka's Miyagikyo distillery is back on the market with a fantastic new offering that doesn't disclose the age, but has no problem disclosing serious flavor. The sherry integration of the whisky is utterly marvelous. It's clearly marked by classic notes of fudge, fruitcake, and toffee, but all three profiles are so harmonious and fluid that it's difficult to hold on to them for more than a second. Nikka's whiskies are always delicate and feminine in style, and this malt is no different. The beauty is what stuns you, rather than the power or the concentra... Read More »

Wonderfully subtle, complex and precise, with a distinctly ethereal quality, high-pitched minerality and superb lift. Finishes very dry and persistent, with lovely lift. This is made inside an igloo in Hokkaido, in Japan's extreme north, where below-freezing temperature prevents unwanted bacteria from surviving, thus ensuring a very pure sake.

Suntory Toki Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Wine & Spirits: "*Year's Best Spirits 2016* While it may seem that our world is suddenly awash in Japanese single malts, the fact is that we’re already in a shortage. Last year, as demand continued to build for its limited stocks, Suntory took the age statement off its Hibiki, suggesting less of the precious older stocks were being used. This year, they’ve introduced Toki, a welcome addition to the portfolio. Whereas Hibiki is a burnished, complex sipper, Suntory’s latest release, Toki, is a light, bright, perky spirit with a surprising punch of flavor—apple, citrus and ...Read More »

When I first met Fukano-san over some very tasty Korean BBQ, her air of sophistication and elegant demeanor belied her ability to drink the entire crew under the table. While she was rather restrained that evening, the other distillers regaled me with stories about her prowess. They had great respect for her not only because she was champion of the bar, but also because they knew her distillery is producing some of Kumamoto's finest spirit.

Shinshu Mars Iwai Japanese Whisky (750ml)

The Mars distillery is very well regarded in Japan and is easily considered the "super third" after the famous Suntory and Nikka distilleries. They don't focus exclusively on traditional single malt and are prone to experiment. They only produce whisky in the winter months so production is very small. This one is produced on the traditional pot stills at Shinshu Mars which was hand crafted in the 1950s. It is an usual blend of 65% corn, 10% Rye, and 25% non peated malt. The fat wide stills produce a very weighty and complex spirit. Mars always delivers a... Read More »

To ensure the quality of their product, the brew masters at Tenju use only naturally filtered, soft water from nearby Mt. Chokai and rice grown by exclusively commissioned local farmers.

White Oak Distillery Akashi Grain Whisky (750ml)

Located in the town of Akashi, near the famed city of Kobe in Japan, White Oak distillery has been in operation since 1919; although very few Americans are familiar with the whisky. Owned by Eigashima, it is actually the oldest operating distillery in Japan, having received its license four years before Yamazaki produced any whisky, despite the fact that it would be another forty years before they actually used it. The non-age statement (NAS) grain whisky is light and fruity with a classic malty profile and a round, supple finish.

Rich and soft in the mouth, conveying lovely fullness without weight. Just a bit aggressive and warm on the finish. This needs to be served with food.

Chichibu's owner and master distiller Ichiro Akuto travels the world acquiring barrels from every whisky producing nation. Those are shipped to his rack houses at Chichibu and aged for many years.

We often tell people to drink that bottle of sake up quickly like a white wine. Such a delicate liquid must go bad quickly after exposure to that monster of a molecule, O2, right?

Watari Bune had gone out of use for fifty years until this brewery revived it in 1989 with 14 grams of seeds. By 1996, they won a gold medal at Japan's National Sake Competition, and another in 1998.
