Suntory Hakushu 12 Year Old Japanese Peated Single Malt Whisky (limit 12) (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) Wine Spectator: "This Suntory distillery is located in a mountain forest in the southern Japanese alps. The whisky has cool, mint/basil, bamboo, kiwi and green melon aromas with the faintest hint of smoke." (10/2014) Whisky Advocate: ...

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 ...

Born Muroka Nama Genshu Draft Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml

Next day shipping recommended. The "Born" sake takes its name not from a Japanese word, but a Sanskrit one meaning "innocent pureness" or "capturing the truth." And it does feel like some secret truth about Gohyakumangoku rice is captured here, quite poetically, in the form of an unfiltered, full-bodied, complex sake made by Katokichibee Shouten, a 350-year-old brewery. Genshu is the first-press, undiluted sake and has a higher alcohol content than other styles.
