Kiuchi Brewery

Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale

9.3

Hitachino produce one of my fave beers. This particular one is quite exotic, since it’s made with red rice. It’s like an IPA, but cleaner. Displays hints of fruits, but besides barley and the red rice (hence the red presentation in the glass), no flavors are added. Wifey doesn’t drink beer, so I get to slurp these by myself 🐶 — 6 days ago

Suntory

AO Blend of five Major Whiskies

Rick K
9.5

Suntory's Blend of Japanese, Canadian, American, Irish and Scotch whiskies. Not going to be sold outside Japan, supposedly, due to complicated tariffs/duties. A little peaty and smoky, but just singular and really interesting. So many layers and it keeps changing in the glass. Really fun. Not as sweet as some Japanese whiskies I've had but not overly smokey or peaty either. I really like this. — a month ago

"This sake has excellent balance between acicidity and sweetness giving it a full, clean taste. It's a very elegant floral sake with delicate fruitiness.
