Number 19 in the 2020 Top 20. This new, higher proof Iwai (pronounced EE-why) was designed for cocktails; however, it’s supple and more than capable as a neat sipper too, with pleasing aromas of honey, ripening pear, barley, exotic woods, and citrus. The palate of honey sweetness, sugar cubes, vanilla, pear, apricot, and spice bows out with honey, breakfast cereal, nougat, and white chocolate. It’s a delicious and unusual whisky from Japan, less aligned with the country’s scotch-like tradition of malts and blends and more similar to bourbon, being made mostly from corn. - Winter 2020 ...

Country: Japan

The rice wines and plum wines of Japan are amongst the most fascinating, aromatic and seductive national drinks in the world, and it is a testament to the traditional practices and expertise of the producers of these beverages that their popularity is continuing to rise across the globe. Both plum wines and sake are produced in many parts of Japan, and there are even several AOC style appellations dedicated to producing plum wines and sake of the highest quality, overseen by regulations similar to those found in esteemed wine regions of France and elsewhere. Both drinks are inextricably linked with the cuisine of Japan, but both are also highly enjoyable when drank without food, giving the drinker a real taste of the beauty of the far east.
