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 ...Read More »

Helios Distillery "Kura The Whisky" Rum Cask Finished Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Helios Distillery "Kura The Whisky" Rum Cask Finished Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (750ml)

The Helios Distillery in the city of Nago has become renowned for their exceptional Awamori, the local Okinawan specialty. This is a kind of aged Sochu that has been consumed on the island since the 15th century. While they made their name locally for selling Awamori, Helios was quietly distilling ultra high quality rum and malt whisky. Their flagship whisky, sold under the Kura brand, is one of the most unique and enticing Japanese whiskies we've ever come across. They begin with peat sourced from the mires of Hokkaido. The Japanese peat has a lot of th ...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 »

Kaiyo Mizunara Oak Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Kaiyo is a negotiant bottler started by a drinks group led by former Asahi employee Mr. Watanabe. He was able to purchase "teaspooned" malt whisky barrels from an unnamed Japanese whisky supplier via his connections in the industry ("teaspooning" is when a distiller adds a teaspoon of another whisky into the barrel before selling it, thus preventing the purchaser from claiming it as a single malt from that distillery). The whiskies are purchased as teaspooned new make (unaged distillates) and then put into Japanese Mizunara oak barrels from Ariake, consi ...Read More »

Kaiyo "The Single" 7 Year Old Mizunara Oak Finished Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Kaiyo has been a huge success with their negociant, no age statement blended whiskey bottlings. Now they introduce Kaiyo "The Single" 7 year old whiskey. This beautiful malt is made in Japan, double matured in aged bourbon barrels, and finished for 6 months on a rocking ship in Mizunara oak. The ship's motion extracts every bit of extra flavor from the extremely expensive Ariake Mizunara oak barrels. Made on a Coffey still, this malt drinks somewhere between Suntory's Toki and Nikka's Coffey Malt with the added complexity, fruitiness, and herbal notes of ...Read More »

White Oak "Akashi" Sherry Cask Single Malt 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 single malt whisky has no age statement, but has plenty of rich malty flavor and a supple fruited character that should please fans of th ...Read More »

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)" (03/2016) 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 ...Read More »

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—a ...Read More »

1990 Shinshu Mars Komagatake 27 Year Single Malt 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. The Komagatake is their ultra-rare, four-barrel single malt. Three of the four barrels are from 1988 or earlier, while the fourth is from 1990. Only 1,286 bottles were produced, for which the distillery holds a lottery prior to release. This is the Japanese ...Read More »

Suntory "Ao" Japanese Vodka (750ml)

In 2013, Japanese whisky giant Suntory unleashed a rice-distilled vodka upon the U.S., but it was only available for a trial run in New York. The spirit was very well-received (as most Suntory products are) and a few years later the company decided to expand the vodka nationally. Named "Ao," which is a word used in Japanese poetry to describe shades of green in nature, the title is meant as an homage to the green rice fields from which the vodka's base is derived. The vodka itself is as elegant and ethereal as the sterling reputation of Suntory might sug ...Read More »

Kujira Ryukyu 20 Year Old "Bourbon Cask" Japanese Whisky (750ml)

Founded in 1952, Kumesen Syuzo produces a distilled spirit known as Awamori that is made entirely with rice and is unique to the Okinawa islands of Japan. Typically aged for just a few years and consumed at lower proof, the distillery began experimenting with high proof aging in ex-bourbon casks in 1989. The result are stocks of extremely old single grain whisky. The age and the american oak set this whisy apart from most of the other rice whiskies on the market because both create a depth and complexity that are not present in the younger products.

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.

Ichiro's Malt Chichibu White Label "Malt & Grain" Japanese Blended Whiskey (750ml)

This unusual whisky takes advantage of Japan's relatively lax regulations for bottling "Japanese Whisky." In Japan, any whisky aged in Japan can be bottled as Japanese Whisky. 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. He then makes a proprietary blend of the international whiskies and his own single malt and bottles it under the Chichibu "White Label".

This unusual product from the southern Japanese island of Amami Oshima is the first vacuum distilled Shochu on the market. This tropical region of Japan is famous for it's sugar cane and this Shochu is fermented from a base of brown sugar and rice. The low temperature distillation provides one of the cleanest and smoothest distilled spirits on the market, the purity reputated by locals to leave you feeling great the next day, but it's easy enough to drink to be pretty dangerous.

Ki No Bi "Tou" Kyoto Japanese Old Tom Gin (750ml)

Distiller's notes: "Based on an exclusive bottling – believed to be Japan’s first Old Tom – created by The Kyoto Distillery for the Tokyo International Bar Show, KI NO TOU takes our classic KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin and sweetens it post-distillation with kokutou (literally ‘black sugar’) from the Okinawan island of Yonaguni. Dating back to the 17th century, kokutou is made in such a way as to retain higher mineral content than other sugars; as well as sweetness it adds complexity.

The final blend has been recalibrated by our distilling team to bring out the best of each botanical at the higher proof.

Shinshu Mars Iwai Tradition Blended Japanese Whisky (750ml)

The Mars distillery is very well regarded in Japan despite the low price point. The pot stills used to make this whisky were constructed in the 50s. The fat stills produce a very weighty and complex spirit and delivers a rich texture and complex aromas. Hombo Shuzo, the owners of the distillery, are one of Japan's top wine producers and therefore have access to great number of cask types. Most whisky is aged in sherry and bourbon, but the distillery is also experimenting with wine cask as well. Iwai has a richness and texture that many of the other entry ...Read More »
