Default Japanese Whiskeys

Y'all might shoot me, but I've been really getting into Japanese Whiskey lately. Yamazaki is affordable as a daily drink and super smooth.

Anyone else out there tried the Japanese Whiskeys?

I like Yamazaki 18, but its pricy and haven't seen a bottle in years at MSRP.

I tried the 18 for the first time last month and loved it. My son will be returning from Japan (USMC) in 3 days with several bottles for me!

Went to an awesome bar in Wilmington, NC and had a flight with Eagle Rare single barrel (bar pick), 1792 Full Proof and Stagg Jr Barrel Proof. Barkeep also gave me a couple other offerings of High West Prairie and Dickel BIB.

Stagg Jr was awesome!! 1792 was right in its heels and Dickel was the surprise.

High West didn’t do anything for me and surprisingly Eagle Rare was, meh...

Found this at Specs the other day and gave it a try. Pretty good to me. Distillery is in Liberty Hill, they are still new and don't even have a tasting room open yet.

I haven't had any of Yamazaki's offerings but I do have a bottle of Nikka Coffey Grain and Coffey Malt at home. The Hibiki Harmony is a tasty drink as well.

just talk to the bourbon/ whiskey folks at specs or your local spot and ask for their help finding some.. it will rarely if ever be on the shelf.. it's always in the back
