This right here. I used to work at a place that allowed me to sample a variety of Japanese brands that I otherwise wouldn't have wanted to fork over the cash for. /csb

Absolutely. Also I was very pleasantly surprised by a scotch from Taiwan (Kavalan Solist) so I am not going to gainsay their ability.

Good bourbon needs heat not a cool climate. The barrels sitting in storage barns in Kentucky are hitting many +90 degree days during the summer and 30 degree days in the winter. The expansion and contractions of the liquid and barrels really makes the final product. Not saying that Japanese bourbon is not great, but the climate makes it different.

Temperature accelerates barrel aging.

Considering how humid Japanese summertime can be I have confidence they can reproduce that part of the process.

Yeah, it's Coffee still and not pot but Nikka Coffee Still is basically bourbon. And I like it. Remember 10 years ago when you could get a bottle of Yamazaki 18 for under 100 bucks? I do.

Recipe and the ingredients/process are the important part.  Get that right and you could make it in Sheboygan

Well fine.  I don't need much encouragement to try a new bourbon.  Just bought a bottle

I'll try it and look out for the Legent next time I'm shopping. I just picked up a couple local ryes to try, and before that got a bottle of Jefferson Reserve Rye that was aged in cognac barrels. My wife got me an ice sphere clear ice mold as an early birthday gift. Fancy old fashioneds could be made this weekend if I start making ice tonight.
 
2021-10-22 2:06:58 AM  
I'd actually like to try that.

Woodford steam heats their warehouse a few times in the winter to accelerate the aging process. The Japanese could do that too.
