Chivas Regal Mizunara

Chivas Regal Mizunara

A usually-boring scotch label tries out an exciting concept for a brand extension. Surprise! It’s still boring.

Suntory Toki Whisky

Suntory Toki Whisky

Don't let the (low) price scare you off. This isn't discount-grade Japanese whisky, but a graceful and well-crafted product. Not just for highballs! 
Overall Rating: ★★☆

Mars Iwai Japanese Whisky

Mars Iwai Japanese Whisky

As everyone goes gonzo for Japanese whisky, the market adjusts to provide supply to match demand. Yes: this is Japanese, and it is whisky, but it might not be what you expect.

Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky

Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky

Nobody really expects anything from this spartan-looking bottle. Until they take a sip and have to hunt around on the floor to see where their jaw went. A favorite of mine and a future favorite of yours.  Overall Rating: ★★★
