The next stop in the Supping Club world tour is Japan. Supplies are pretty lean at the moment, so we are looking forward to trying some great whiskies before they disappear. What’s your favourite Japanese whisky?

Nothing like watching a movie and drinking whisky with it. Especially if the movie is The Angel’s Share and whiskies are from the heart of Scotland, like @glendronach @glenglassaugh and @benriach
Throughout #DrammyMovie event we sipped different expressions from these distilleries.
Thanks to all who joined us made this event unforgettable. Thanks to @uisge_vitae who designed this special night with me and worked every second of it! And thanks to @theuptownoakland for the beautiful and intimate venue! 🥃📽 #whisky#whiskey#viski#movie#drinkingthedream#theangelsshare#kenloach#scotland#glendronach#glenglassaugh#benriach
The Nikka Tsuru 17 is an expression that’s been on my radar for a while but I didn’t have an opportunity to try it until a couple months ago in Tokyo. And wow, I’ve been missing out!
The Tsuru 17 is Nikka Whisky’s blended answer to the Hibiki 17, and never made here to the US. With notes of Sherry and sandalwood with a hint of smoke, it makes for a perfect foil to the floral notes of the balanced Hibiki 17. Even the bottle is a perfect counterpart, with its curves and twists versus the perfect stoic symmetry of that of the Hibiki.
Sounds good right? The only problem - it’s already been discontinued, along with the Miyagikyo and Yoichi age statements back in 2015, replaced with a NAS version. 😭😭😭 Crap! Hate it when that happens. Well, that didn’t stop me from finding one, and I’m motivated to add more - this is the first.
Anyone try the Tsuru 17 before? What do you think? And how’s the NAS compare?
we've got plenty of reasons to smile - 100+ of them, to be exact. come check out our extensive list of unique spirits & liqueurs, including lots of rare mezcal, bourbon, asian whisky & more. come sip with us. #drinkneat
Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt 43%
Hello Monday, you call for some alcoholic reinforcement. Into the breach steps Nikka's Pure Malt. An in-house blended malt from Yoichi and Miyagikyo, named after the man who started Japanese Whisky and Nikka. Plums, dried apricots, nutty sherry flor, dried coconut and vanilla with an overtone of drying smoky peat wrapped in a soft and exceptionally creamy mouthfeel. Time to pour another.
