There’s something about this time of year that makes staying at home much more enticing. Whether it’s the colder weather, the excitement of the upcoming holidays, or just pure exhaustion, you’ll never regret a relaxing night in. And while you may be frequenting your favorite bars less often, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be drinking less. Now that December has officially arrived, we picked some our favorite bottles of Japanese whisky to enjoy during the winter season – perfect for staying in and sipping but also great as gifts!
Sunday’s 7 Year Single Cask
The Sunday’s 7 Year Single Cask was selected exclusively for Sunday’s Grocery from a very rare cask and only 312 bottles were produced. It’s great for drinking neat as it was undiluted and non-chill filtered, produced in Japan at Hanyu and Chichibu distilleries, and naturally bottled in Scotland.
Hibiki Japanese Harmony
Soft and easy drinking, this malt and grain is perfect for bourbon lovers. The 24 rivets on the bottle pay homage to the fact that you can drink Hibiki 24 hours a day. This whisky is also ideal for making Old Fashioneds.
This is a blend of 12 and 13-year-old whisky from the now-closed Karuizawa distillery. The Asama remains one of the most affordable whiskies on the market from Karuizawa’s legendary offering. Savor neat.
Nikka Coffey Grain
Made from almost 100% corn, this whisky is sweet, soft, and smooth – perfect in your eggnog! Nikka Coffey Grain is made from a continuous still in order to produce the simplest, cleanest spirit.
Yoichi 15 Year
Discontinued since 2015, this bottle is a rare find and remains one of the greatest Yoichi Expressions ever produced. Peaty and pungent, Yoichi 15 is great on the rocks and even better when enjoyed by a fireplace.
