It’s unusual to talk about active distilleries, rather than defunct ones, when talking about rare whisky. But bartender-in-chief Masahiko Endo of Mizunara recommends just such a tipple. The Nikka 40 is a blended whisky containing some of the oldest stock available at Nikka’s distilleries, including Yoichi malt distilled in 1945 and aged for a staggering 40 years. Visit Mizunara to get a taste of this rare dram, a mere $8,000 per glass.
