Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
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 ...

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

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Malt Whisky (750ml)
Back In Stock!
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The name of this whisky has nothing to do with coffee—rather, it's named for a type of still invented by Aneas Coffey, which is used to make this golden spirit. It offers mild vanilla-pear aromatics and is relatively light and silky on the palate. Look for a light vanilla sweetness at first, which gives way to a rounded dark chocolate note and baking spice finish. Recommended for highballs and other mixed drinks.

Wine & Spirits: "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 honey note...

Suntory is the biggest name in Japanese whiskey, playing a pivotal, some might say definitive, role in establishing the category as a global market phenomenon. Indeed, many of the most sought-after, benchmark labels are distilled and bottled under the Suntory banner. So, it was only a matter of time before they threw their hat into the clear spirits game. Enter Haku, an ultra-premium vodka distilled from the finest white rice. From the producer: "HAKU Vodka, brought to life by the House of Suntory, is a Japanese premium craft vodka made from 100 percent ...

The Tajima Brewery specializes in the traditional yamahai method of starter production. This insanely labor intensive method is time consuming and difficult but gives a complex and layered flavor profile. While this style can often be super robust and a tad funky, the Old Virtue from Fuku Chitose is nuanced and elegant with flavors ranging from banana, lychee, toffee to a slightly lactic creamy note. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.

It's excellent paired with west coast oysters or caviar.

90 points Whisky Advocate: "A unifying blend of 10 year old Chichibu, with select stocks of American, Canadian, Irish, and scotch whiskies matured in Japan, produces a nose of toffee apple, firm caramel, milk chocolate, ground hazelnut, roasted fennel seed, chopped cilantro stalks, green banana, and struck match. Cereal-led palate with Golden Grahams, light fruits of apricot, peach, and melon, base notes of pepper, moving through butterscotch, toffee, maple syrup, and crème caramel.

Nikka is continuing to expand its Coffey Still lineup with the addition of a new gin and vodka to complement the malt and grain-based whiskies distilled on the multi-story apparatus located in the Miyagikyo distillery. Using Japanese citrus varieties like yuzu, kabosu, amanatsu and shikuwasa, as well as sansho pepper and apples, the gin is a burst of fresh and fruity delights. That bright citric element is then paired with juniper, angelica, coriander and lemon peel to bolster it with a clean and aromatic finish. The result is familiar, yet completely un...

Whisky Advocate: "Prunes, barbecue seasonings, and hoisin sauce, sweetened by rich caramel; soak up the heady aromatics. Gloopy texture on the palate explodes into life with burnt orange, dried mango, and banoffee pie, spiraling down to black licorice, burnt oak, and Brazil nut. The name acknowledges Kiichiro Iwai’s role in ushering in whisky making for Hombo Shuzo in the 1960s, drawing on the notes diligently recorded by Masataka Taketsuru in Scotland.

Traditional London Dry Gin botanicals mingle with Japanese botanicals, topped with a splash of sake spirit. The spicy sansho pepper and floral, citrusy notes of yuzu balance perfectly the sweet earthiness of Angelica ...

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 unusual blend of 70% corn 30% non peated malt. The fat, wide stills produce a very weighty and complex spirit. Mars always delivers a rich textu...

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.

The single malt whisky has no age statement, but has plenty of rich malty flavor and a supple fruited character that should please fans of the g...
