2014 In Review: Best Japanese Whiskies

December 26, 2014

Japanese whiskey has definitely gained ground in a big way coming in to 2014. Japan’s producers create a wide variety of fantastic expressions, and we see a great cross section in both wished-for and collected bottles. Particularly with Suntory’s purchase of Beam this year, providing an expanded distribution network, we look forward to an ever larger variety of whiskey from Japan coming to market in the coming years.
