Yamazaki 25


Lagavulin 1976


Macallan 30 sherry cask.


Not so much a grail, but more of this.

I third the Yamazaki love. But why insist on single malt? Hibiki 21 is sublime, as is Nikka 21.

I learned in Japan that the history of blending is very different in Japan compared to say Scotland. In Scotland, blending occurred between firms and they would more often than not trade only their worst barrels. In Japan, due to market concentration, individual firms blended using different products from their own distilleries, making a large variety of cuts and distillates for themselves. So Nikka Taketsuru blends a variety of Yoichi and Miyagikyo single malts. That being said Nikka From The Barrel, which many connoisseurs love, actually does not qualify as Japanese whisky under the new rules as it blends over 100 malts and grains, some from outside Japan.

I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments.

I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?

Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+?

Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
