The Best Japanese Scotch: Suntory Yamazaki 1984

WHISKEY051711_1_blog.jpgDon't belittle the limited-edition Suntory Yamazaki 1984 as merely Japanese-made scotch. This amber single-malt from the country's oldest distillery gets much of its character from spending two-plus decades in casks crafted of mizunara, a native oak. There's smoke, of course, but also a singular, exotic spiciness—warm like cinnamon at first, then yielding to a long, sweet finish. Suntory Yamazaki 1984, $600 at www.klwines.com
