Hibiki Japanese Harmony Blended Whisky

The Harmony is nice but a little flat tonight. For some reason I didn’t like the 17 as much as I do tonight — 2 months ago

Sayuri Nigori Sake

Loved this. It paired well with sushi and Asian rice dishes, and was great just by itself. Slightly thick with a subtle sweetness. — 8 days ago

Dassai Sake Brewery

Dassai 23 Junmai Daiginjo Yamadanishiki Sake

After a line-up featuring the likes of Aramasa, Yamamoto, Tatenokawa, and Ohmine, the Dassai 23 Centrifuge came off a little boring. As JT puts it, “It’s what I’d expect saké to taste like.” Then chef Alex added the darnest comment, “Doesn’t it remind you of soju.” Hahahaha.

Rich, round and heavy, with an almost sterile quality to the finish, it definitely wasn’t up my alley but I got to commend how lovely the silky textures were. Solid though - Dassai is Dassai, like how Dom is Dom. Reliability at scale.

From the Barrel Double Matured Blended Whiskey

If you’ve ever wanted to try Johnnie Walker Blue Label, but refuse to pay the ridiculous price, GET THIS! I’m telling you, it tastes exactly the same. It’s still a blend, which limits its possibilities for me, but this is as good as blends get. — 2 months ago
