The Hands-Down Best Japanese Whisky to Drink Right Now

If you can find it and afford it, that is.

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?

Luckily for soba lovers, Tokyo Soba on the ground level of Icon Village in Tanjong Pagar has been doling out bowls of these Japanese noodles to a steady stream of regulars since July last year.

Although its appearance on Singapore’s shores is recent, the eatery’s first outlet in Tokyo’s bustling Nihonbashi central business district has been around for 12 years. Just like Singapore’s bak chor mee and nasi padang, soba to the Japanese is an everyday favourite.
