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. ...

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 ...

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

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.

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.

Suntory Toki Japanese Whisky (750ml)

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 ...

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.

Fukano 10 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Cask Japanese Whisky (750ml)

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. Instead, expect complex aromatics with a strong citrus and subtle vanilla quality. Hints of white rose, acaci ...

This is a fairly thick and chewy "nigorizake" (cloudy sake), but it is still surprisingly dry. The aromas are bright and fresh and they show a lovely ricey and fruity combination. In the mouth, this sake has solid weight and gives the same flavors of fresh fruit and creamy fresh rice that your nose told you about. The finish has a pleasant astringency and is nicely mellow, beckoning you for another mouthful. You will rarely taste a classier nigori at this price. This maybe the ultimate food-friendly nigori.
