Where Can You Buy Japanese Whisky in Singapore?

The market for Japanese whisky is exploding and chances are that if you are in Singapore you are wondering just where you can get your hands on some of this fantastic whisky. With Suntory’s 2015 win for the best whisky in the world, Japanese whisky has been all the rage since. It is likely that you used to be able to find some of your favorite brands, but now might be struggling to locate them anywhere. The good news is that you can buy Japanese whisky in Singapore if you know where to look. It is also important to make sure that when you do find your favorite bottle, you buy it right away because they simply fly off the shelves as soon as they arrive.

If you are shopping for Japanese whisky in Singapore, you are going to face two options. You can purchase some of the options that are available that are younger and not as mature. These options are often less costly, but not cheap. If you want something with age, you are going to have to pay a higher price. If you are a Japanese connoisseur, you already know that the aged whiskies are going to be better. The younger products from some of the newer facilities are going to be great in the future, so trying them now is not a horrible plan as you will be able to look forward to what they are offering in the future. Look at the age statement or for a recurring limited edition if you truly want a quality Japanese whisky.

When it comes down to it, you are going to have to put in a bit of effort to find Japanese whisky in Singapore, but you do not have to use up your savings to get a good bottle to enjoy. Here are some great Japanese whiskies that are available in Singapore at various price points.

Hibiki Japanese Harmony

Hibiki Japanese Harmony whisky has become a bit more difficult to find over the past several months and the price is continuing to go up. However, if you can find it, the whisky is worth the price. This is a blend and does not have an age statement, but it is one of the top Japanese blends offering a flavorful and complexity with a taste that does not overwhelm you when you drink it neat.

Nikka Coffey Grain

Although the name of this whisky is Nikka Coffey Grain, you will not find coffee in this Japanese whisky. The Coffey in the name is a shout out to a person who invented the continuous distillation still. This is an old way of creating a lighter whisky and Nikka still uses this method. This whisky is light and sweet and something that you can enjoy every day. If you are searching for a solid Japanese whisky, this is a great choice.

Suntory Toki

Most of the time you are going to be able to find Suntory Toki in stock at any liquor store you visit in Singapore. This particular Japanese whisky is readily available, which is convenient for those who enjoy a good whisky and want something right away. Suntory toki is relatively inexpensive and feels really light on the tongue. For those who enjoy a highball, Suntory toki is the perfect mixer. In fact, in Japan the Toki highball is so popular that they have machines to make the drink quickly. If you want to make your own Toki highball at home, simply add some club soda and a bit of lemon or other fruit and drink it up.

Shinshu Mars Iwai Tradition Whisky

A bottle of Shinshu Mars Iwai Tradition whisky is typically under $100. The Japanese whisky is relatively new, but comes from a distillery with a bit of history. This whisky is aged in sherry, wine, and bourbon barrels at a location that is high up in the mountains. This location was chosen because of the great quality of the water and the moderate temperatures that are perfect for aging whisky.
