Move over Scotch, Summer ’19 is for drinking Japanese whisky.
In recent years, the global enthusiasm for Japanese whisky has exploded. This is at least partly due to the fact that whisky expert Jim Murray named a Japanese whisky as the best in the world back in 2015 (Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013). But Murray was only confirming what others knew: Japan makes some really exceptional whisky that every fan of the brown stuff ought to learn to appreciate. In fact, these expressions have grown so popular that right now there’s an all-out panic over shortages.
As with various Scotch brands and some bourbons, the shortage talk is probably more smoke than fire. For now at least, you can still find delicious, well-made, reasonably priced Japanese whiskies at your local liquor store. Hold onto your highballs, folks, you’re in for a treat.

As a former food writer, I’ve eaten a lot of expensive steak. But an A5 Olive Wagyu — a top quality, hard-to-get steak from Japanese cows that are fed toasted olive peels — stood apart from all the others.
A bottle of good Japanese whisky (they spell it without the “e”) is incredibly difficult to get your hands on these days, and stupid expensive if you do. Yamazaki 12 used to cost around 50 bucks, but now you can expect to pay at least triple the price at any liquor store that actually has it in stock. So why does Japanese whisky cost so much, and is it really worth it? The answer to the latter question is yes; it is more often than not delicious whisky that is quite different from single malt scotch, its closest spiritual relative. The former question, however, requires some explanation.
Nowadays, it seems as if every bar is offering some sort of “Kobe beef slider” or something similar, but in reality, there’s no way any of those contain even a trace of real Kobe. Why? Because Kobe beef is up there with themost expensivebeef in the world, only available at a handful ofhigh-end steakhousesin America. But if you can afford it, a handful of companies are selling real-deal Kobe beef online, and we had the opportunity to cook up a Kobe steak for ourselves.
