What Are We Drinking Now? Nobushi Japanese Whiskey

Kevin has been experimenting with Nobushi Japanese Whiskey. We are publishing his discoveries here. Nobushi is a blend of whiskeys from the Miyagi and Nagano prefectures. This stuff is delicious: Lots of floral and citrus notes go extremely well with the hints of caramel and vanilla. I've had this straight, on the rocks, and in a few cocktails — try as a sub for Cognac in traditional cocktails like a Sidecar or Corpse Reviver, or make a badass highball and enjoy your life. You won't regret it. $49.99/bottle
