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.

The flask, by nature, is a clandestine item. It slips in and out of interior suit pockets on the sly. Why not bring an added dose of covertness to the whole ordeal with this All Black ZYX Flask. The stainless steel flask sports a mysterious motif that’s supported by the alphabet being curiously printed in reverse on the front. Each All Black ZYX Flask holds 6 ounces of the good stuff. If an MI6 agent were to take a swig on the job, we like to imagine this would be his flask of choice.
