In an articled titled, "12 GREAT GLOBAL WHISKEYS TO DRINK RIGHT NOW" Bushido's Meiyo whisky gets the honor of being one of the few Japanese whiskies deemed as a "must have" from around the world.
Here's what they had to say.
Japanese whisky is literally on everyone’s lips these days, as the category has exploded in popularity over the past few years. So what’s a whiskey drinker to do when bottles of Hakushu and Yamazaki 12 have disappeared from the shelves?
Well, how about trying something completely new – even if it’s a rice whisky, which will surely rankle a few folks. Meiyo Honor is a 17-year-old rice whisky aged in bourbon barrels that definitely does not taste like the shochu some people will undoubtedly compare this to.
Go ahead, give it a try – even if the price tag is a little steep, this might be easier to find than any age statement bottle out there from Nikka or Suntory. $400
