    Japanese Whisky - Getting some traction in the US

    Saw this today:

    Spread around the love IMHO.

    I was a little hesitant to click on that link, but since I'm home I gave it a shot. Love me some Hibiki!

    Re: Japanese Whisky - Getting some traction in the US

    I'm glad that more of this is coming to the states.

    Been jealous of Paris who has had a Japanese whiskey bar for the past couple of years.

    I just got off a cruise where I drank the hell out of Nikka From the Barrel. I like Yamazaki 12 a lot and Hibiki 12 is great too. I have to pick up more of the latter from P/S next month.

    Any cause for concern regarding post-tsunami bottles from Japan?

    The glow makes them easier to find in a dark liquor cabinet!

    Was wondering why you posted that but now that I'm viewing on my desktop, I can see why you were hesitant - LMAO!

    My spreading the love comment no doubt helped allay your fears ;-)

    Geez, I love the Noiguchi museum, used to go by there all the time when I lived in Queens. I wish I had known about this event, I would have loved to taste the Yamazaki 25 or Hibiki 21. Is there going to be a repeat, and if so when?!? Internet research here I come. Thanks for the link CW.

    I've had a bottle of the Yamazaki 12 open for a while. It was my first Japanese whisky
    and I bought it out of curiosity and to fill out an order. It's a bit different but a nice
    change of page.

    I haven't sampled much else along those lines but do have a K&L 1999 Karuizawa on the
    way and am looking forward to trying that one.
