People can’t get enough Japanese whisky. Bottles are selling for outrageous prices and even Beyoncé is singing about sipping Yamazaki on the rocks. And while all that love and attention has caused a shortage, Japanese distilleries are still introducing new products to the U.S. market. The newest of those new products is a blended whiskey from Nikka called From The Barrel.
From The Barrel was introduced in Japan in 1986, long before the Japanese whisky craze started. The blend picked up a cult following over the years, but the only way bottles made it stateside was if someone picked some up abroad and brought it back. Now those of us without a world traveling booze contact can get our hands on some. Best of all, it’s available nationally and only costs $65.
