This Is Whisky Advocate’s Japanese Whisky of the Year

For 23 years running, Whisky Advocate has been exposing high-quality Japanese whisky to a fairly large audience. They’re continuing the tradition with this Yoichi Single Malt, their Japanese Whisky of the Year. The expression is the only Yoichi available in the United States, already setting it apart from other Japanese whiskies you can find on your local store’s shelves. The flavor is complex, with the peat and smoke you’d expect from a whisky, but adding in lime, briny seashells, and kiwi, among a half dozen other flavors. It’s a unique spirit, which is probably one of the reasons Whisky Advocate is advocating for this whisky. It runs for $80 a bottle, which is a bit out of the average price range, but isn’t so far out that it’s inaccessible. If you’re interested in Japanese whisky, the Yoichi Single Malt promises to be a strong entry point.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
