Japanese and Asian Whisky
- Nikka From the Barrel51,4%75Nikka From the Barrel is a blend of grain whisky from Miyagikyo and malt whisky from Yoichi. Three more Japanese whiskies to go in this little series. Full bodied and punchy palate. Plenty of spices, a little caramel and vanilla, and a good mouthful of fruit. Long and warming aftertaste.
- Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky45%80Delightful fruity and spicy whisky. Harmonious blend of dense spices, rich oak, and lemon and orange notes. Distilled on the Coffey Still (No coffee added!).
- Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon40%45Coming from Buffalo Trace distillery lying on Kentucky river banks, where ancient buffalo carved paths twists through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers.

- Mitcher’s Small Batch Unblended41,7%80Very fruity and sweet, this whiskey from Michter's positively drips with toffee and butterscotch, enlivened by toasty notes and a hint of vanilla and dried fruit. Technically not a bourbon due to its ageing in 'bourbon-soaked' barrels as opposed to new oak.
- Mitcher’s Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye42,4%80Dry & spicy, yet fruity at the same time. This rich and aromatic Kentucky straight rye is considered as one of the best ryes on the market.

- Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey50%75If you’re searching for a bold spicy rye, you won’t find it here. However, if you have an open mind to a more mellow fruitier rye, you’ve come to the right place. Additionally for individuals who usually drink bourbon but are just exploring ryes, this is a nice “bridging” rye that helps you start to explore the world of ryes without jumping straight into the bolder spicier ones.
The peaches and dried bananas from the nose carry over, and now they’re nicely mixed with white pepper with a dash of spice. Rittenhouse Rye doesn’t have a heavy mouthfeel however it’s also not light by any means. It’s really nicely balanced overall.
- STORK Club Straight Rye Whisky45%60Distilled from selected German rye and aged in individually toasted barrels made from American and German oak. Notes of caramel & spices, dark chocolate & espresso.
