Alright, you got us. Time machines aren’t really a thing. But this blend, which was distilled back in 1957 and bottled in 1967, comes pretty damn close. In fact, it was produced just after the Toyo Yozo distillery in Japan closed its doors. And back in ’67, it was picked as The Best Barmen's choice by the Japan Bartenders Association.

Want to take it seriously old school? Ring the bell—because this rare Japanese blended Whisky is now in session.

It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
