Even just seeing this bottle in person at the Whisky Exchange Shop is enough to make me happy! I can only imagine what it tastes like.. 🥃 #oneday

The Good Life....📸 @whiskyislander ・・・ ⌚Everyone's got time for some 1963 whisky from the now shut-down, legendary Japanese Karuizawa distillery. Just this spring a bottle of Karuizawa 1963 sold for over $30,000 while the Karuizawa 1960 Archer bottle went for a whopping $135,000. It was the largest auction of Karuizawa bottles to date. Take a peek at my piece on the auction @dekantawhisky: https://dekanta.com/inside-worlds-largest-karuizawa-auction/ Credit: @karuizawa_collector __________________ #kar#karuizawaky #karuizawa #karuizawadistillery #jap#japanesewhiskey #rolex #luxury #japanesewhisky #scotch #bourbon #whi#whi#whiskyr #rarewhisky #luxurywhisky #whiskycollector #whisky #whiskyporn #instawhisky #instadram #singlemaltwhisky #whisky #japan #tokyo #instadrink #ジャパニーズウイスキー #ウイスキー #日#日本‚¦ã‚¤ã‚¹ã‚­ãƒ¼ #日本 #かんぱーい #シングルモルト #サントリー

🎭Something a little different today! Here we have a bottle from Kavalan's Solist single cask 😍 series. As Yamazaki led Japanese whisky to global fame, so has Kavalan come to define Taiwanese whisky.

🎪Good times at Bar Zoetrope in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It's an amazing bar featuring one of the largest selections of Japanese whiskies I've ever seen. Small and cozy, classic movies play on the projector all evening long, as the owner, Atsushi Horigami, runs the place. Fast-paced, blunt, and straightforward, he provides a rather different type of Japanese customer service 😂, the place is a must if in Tokyo!

✈When at the Narita airport in Tokyo and the temptation 😂 is strong. Which one would you go for? The multiple award-winning Hibiki 21 limited Mt. Fuji edition, or the Hibiki 30 year-old? __________________ #hibiki #hibiki21 #yamazaki #yamazakiwhisky #suntory #hakushuwhisky #suntorywhisky #jap#japanesewhiskey #japanesewhisky #scotch #blendedwhisky #whi#whiskylover #rarewhisky #luxurywhisky #whiskycollector #whisky #instawhisky #instadram #japan #tokyo #instadrink #ジャパニーズウイスキー #ウイスキー #日#日本‚¦ã‚¤ã‚¹ã‚­ãƒ¼ #日本 #かんぱーい #シングルモルト #サントリー

🌹Which Hibiki Master's Select do you prefer? If you ever come by one of these bad boys at an airport duty free store, grab it. It's far above the Hibiki Harmony, and, perhaps, even surpasses the 12 in terms of balance and depth. Happy bottle hunting!

💫The Essence of Suntory whisky range has been announced! Three limited editions featuring amazing new bottle designs and labels will launch in Japan on February 27th. All cask strength, all unique. Yamazaki Peated Malt - 12 Years. Hakushi Rye - 4 Years. Chita Wine Finish - 16 Years. These showcase a new, experimental side of Suntory we haven't seen. Can't wait to try them, even though three similar expressions were sampled 🤔 at last year's Tokyo Bar Show. __________________ #hakushu #hibiki21 #yamazaki #yamazakiwhisky #suntory #hakushuwhisky #suntorywhisky #jap#japanesewhiskey #japanesewhisky #scotch #blendedwhisky #whi#whiskyr #rarewhisky #luxurywhisky #whiskycollector #whisky #instawhisky #instadram #japan #tokyo #instadrink #ジャパニーズウイスキー #ウイスキー #日#日本のウイスキー #日本 #かんぱーい #シングルモルト #サントリー #theessenceofsuntory

Compass Box “No Name” A blended malt composed of whisky from well known distilleries which are cheekily referred to as: the Islay distillery located in the South East of the island on Pier Road, and the distillery located in Port Askaig, plus a much-loved distillery in the village of Brora. These 3 can be translated into Ardbeg, Caol Ila and Clynelish respectively. There is also an unidentified Malt finished in French oak casks. All in all, this wonderful mischief makes it all the more intriguing 🤔 Since there is over 75% Ardbeg, 6% Caol Ila, 13.4% Clyelish and a tiny 0.5% of the final Highland Malt blend component, there is a lot going on! Interestingly this final 0.5% has a complex enough story of it’s own, being a vatting of different proportions of Clynelish, Daluaine and Teaninich which is then matured in what Compass box calls “ highly active hybrid casks”. After all of this explanation, thanks for sticking with me!! Now to taste it 👍😋 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - COLOUR: Remarkably pale, almost reminiscent of a glass of Chardonnay. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - NOSE: Charred wood, peaty and “germolene” antiseptic! Waxy notes can be detected with some water, as can toffee. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - PALATE: Smoky and sweet, with a pleasant balance of spice and fruit. There is an almond-like nutty flavour and a drying spice towards the end. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - FINISH: Still have the charred wood and smoke which appears more dry and tarry. Stay with it a bit longer and a lemony note and some residual sweetness were there with some salty “embers” - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - SUMMARY: Like all big, well balanced and thoughtfully constructed drams, these first impressions are only that, and although I enjoyed this one immensely, it gives me the impression that I need to take time to allow it to really open up over an evening. I really enjoy sharing much of Compass Box’s core products with friends and family, and maybe I should unleash “No Name” on them too; the peat lovers should really appreciate the sweet sophistication.... and I’d love to hear what you all think of this one.

🎏 Care for a dram? There's a lot to look forward to in 2018 when it comes to Japanese whisky. For one, the amazing whisky festivals taking place thoughout the year! I've prepared a piece with all the exciting events 😍 and when they are being held.

SMWS 17.36 “Exotic and Oriental” 11 years old at 56.3% Matured in refill/ ex-bourbon . COLOUR: Pale straw. . NOSE: Sweet lemons, pineapple and something which I have never found in a whisky before..tomato ( this is on the SMWS tasting label and just goes to show how developed the senses of the nosing/tasting panel is!). And I found the mint described on the label, which for me was like “spearmint chewing gum” And there is coconut there too. With a few drops of water, the nose revealed some oily or waxy notes. . PALATE : Sweet and smooth and fruity , and for me with lots of coconut and pepper. . FINISH: fading fruit and a little salty, with vanilla. . Overall, this SMWS 17 (Scapa) has the classic characteristics of the distillery. As they say...”what’s not to like”?

If the Whiskey heavens blessed us and it began to rain whiskey, what whiskey drops would you choose to collect in your glass? 🌧 🥃 • After giving the Little Book a try, I don’t think I would mind for that to collect in mine! 👌🏽 • A slight overcast here in Phoenix and we finally might be getting some rain here in the desert. I swear it feels like it’s been forever since we had some rain! 🌦 • • • • • #thewhiskeyfiend #whiskeyfiend #littlebook #whiskygram #whiskeylifestyle #whiskyporn #scotch #bourbon #bou#bourbonlover #cigar #whiskeygram #whiskygeek #bourbonlover #whiskeyheaven #arizonabourbonsociety #whiskeyphotography #arizonarain #bestofphoenix #azlocal #phoenixarizona #whiskeyneat #whiskeyenthusiast #whiskytime #luxurywhisky #whiskyhunting #whiskywithaview #whiskyglass #whiskeylove

🍵Whisky aged in cognac casks, tequilla, wine, and many other interesting oak barrels. White Oak is one of the smallest but most interesting distilleries in Japan. They only distill for a few months each year, keeping their releases extremely limited. Chichibu and Mars Shinshu may be under the global spotlight in terms of small Japanese producers, but White Oak's Akashi range is well on par in terms of depth and flavour. _______________ #akashi #mizunara #chichibu #yam#yamazaki #urushi #cognac #suntory #jap#japanesewhiskey #japanesewhisky #scotch #blendedwhisky #whi#whi#whiskyr #rarewhisky #luxurywhisky #whiskycollector #whisky #instawhisky #instadram #yamazaki #whisky #japan #tokyo #instadrink #ジャパニーズウイスキー #ウイスキー #日#日本‚¦ã‚¤ã‚¹ã‚­ãƒ¼ #日本 #かんぱーい #シングルモルト

Bruichladdich Micro-Provenance Series Cask Evolution. This is part of a series coming from interesting casks and only available online from the distillery. Bruichladdich offers a number of 20 cl bottles in sets of 3 and does a live broadcast from the distillery to “explore” with the head distiller. . . This bottle which is 1 of 313, and never to be repeated, has been matured full term in European Oak previously containing Sauternes ( 9 years) Distilled using Optic barley and bottled at 75.2% vol The only other insights on the bottle are the cask number(1527), the warehouse number and rack number. . . Hopefully the good people @bru@bruichladdich will see this post and tell us what else could be found in this great dram, since this is the very last chance I have to taste it, along with one of my sons and the whisky thief who drank the rest 😊 ( see photo 3) . . NOSE: Very sweet, with orange, vanilla, pears and some oaky notes. . . PALATE: Fantastically sweet and with a creamy texture. A little bit of smoke and citrus returns with oranges and chocolate. At this stage I barely have enough left to describe the finish😳, but it really is delicious. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - FINISH: Initially maintains some sweetness and fruit and then takes some time to yield that last dry and slightly spicy and nutty notes. . . In summary, I really am sorry that this is the end of a really interesting bottle, with the consolation that whatever @bruichladdich learned from this beautiful whisky , they will surely share again in another expression.

🎶"Lean on me" 😂. Two amazing Yamazaki expressions, side by side, both offering immeasurable depth. In recent news, it was announced that Japanese whisky giants Suntory, Asahi, and Kirin are investing millions into increasing whisky production. Head over to @dekantawhisky and check out my new piece on the expansion 🙂. __________________ #mizunara #yamazaki18 #yamazakiwhisky #yamazaki12 #suntorytime #suntorywhisky #rare #jap#japanesewhiskey #japanesewhisky #scotch #blendedwhisky #whi#whiskyr #rarewhisky #luxurywhisky #cigar #cigarlovers #instawhisky #instadram #whisky #japan #tokyo #instadrink #ジャパニーズウイスキー #ウイスキー #日#日本‚¦ã‚¤ã‚¹ã‚­ãƒ¼ #日本 #かんぱーい #シングルモルト

Arran 14 year old “ Standing Stones on Machrie Moor”. Unpeated and bottled at 46%. This is a bottle from about 2012 and is a marriage of first fill sherry and bourbon casks. . . COLOUR: Golden, pale straw. . . NOSE: Fruity, with notes of sweet raisins and orange. A little oily or waxy and then, with a little water, pineapple and apple. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - PALATE: a little spicy with honey, orange, and red berries all backed up by a clean vanilla note. . . FINISH: As the honeyed sweetness subsides, some of the fruit remains and a dry spicy note persists for a pleasant conclusion. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - It was great to reacquaint myself with Arran and in summary this bottling is a nicely balanced and fruity dram, with a surprising level of sophistication.
