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)" (03/2016) 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. ...

Asahi Shuzo Dassai "50" Junmai Daiginjo Nigori Sake (300ml)

Possibly the sexiest Nigori we have ever tasted. You don't usually see Nigori at a Ginjo level! This is sleek and delightfully light. There is a touch of carbonation, which helps lift the sweetness of the rice. Great fruity notes and a very clean style for a creamy sake. (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood)

This is truly old school brewery from Gifu prefecture was founded in 1868. They like to say "Nothing has changed from the beginning." One of the smallest breweries in Japan, they're making only a few thousand bottles a year and most of it is sold locally in large format. This is their "small size" - a still hefty 900ml.

This exceptional single barrel from the premier producer of malted rice whisky in Japan reaches new levels of elegance. Aged for ten long years in toasted brandy puncheons, the oak still takes a backseat to the exceptionally smooth and fruit forward spirit. Nonetheless, we're reaching the upper limits of what we've experienced in terms of aging this type of spirit and it retains plenty of texture without exhibiting any overt rice or sake flavors.

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.
