I am a fan of Hakushu also. Very good one for you to try. Nice and smokey but very smooth. Can be had for around $75 a bottle.

It is definitely HTF here in Chicago. You are at the mercy of the store selling it as well so be careful. You should be able to get it close to $100 a bottle, most retailers will say its $150, but don hesitate to just offer them $100. It is one of the only times alcohol is negotiable.

I have a contact in the US, the same one that hooked me up with the hibaki. Will see if he can get and at what price.

I like the sound of that, smokey and smooth....can imagine that with a cigar, sounds perfect.

Toby if I could find a work around on the shipping I would gladly send you a bottle. The postal service here sucks in a major way.

It is sublime. The best part is, Hakushu is not one of the more well known whisky's so it is an excellent bottle that can be had for a good price.

Yamazaki 12 is great single malt. A nice sweetness, similar to a Highland Scotch. 5 years ago I was getting it for $55/bottle. Then the secret got out.

Hakushu 12 is anoher good single malt. Gently smoky. Clean finish

Hibiki Harmony is also very good blended whisky. Its a blend of Japanese malt and grain whiskies from Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita. It focuses on focuses on the malt from Yamazaki.

All 3 are made by Suntory Whiskey.

Recommendation: Suntory Whisky Toki is what I have been drinking a lot of lately. It is also a blend of Japanese malt and grain whiskies from Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita. But this one highlights the Hakushu malt, aged in American oak, so it has a little more smoke, but nothing overpowering, and still has some sweetness and a bit of spice. It goes for $36/bottle around here, and makes a great pairing with a cigar! A terrific value for a blend of this caliper.

And for something sweeter, more like an Irish Whisky, try Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky. A nice, viscous mouth feel that coats your tongue. About $55 here. This one does not pair well with cigars, though.

My buddy has a big presence in the Japanese market for his Texas made whiskeys. Swift Distillery, made in Dripping Springs. It's available at Spec's, Total Wine for national accounts, and quite a few stores here in Texas. I could ask Nick if we could sell/ship out some bottles for those who have an interest. It's a lighter whiskey, and according to Nick, that is why the Japanese like his product.
