We called Suntory yesterday to ask if they really didn’t have any, and they said no. It’s all been shipped abroad. There are no bottles at all in Japan.

A staff member in the Isetan department store in Japan, where they stock a range of limited-edition whiskies from around the world, speaking about the Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013, which has just been announced as the greatest whisky in the world by Jim Murray.

It’s also hard to get here: I was in the Celtic Whiskey Shop in Dublin last week when Mike Ross, Devin Toner and three other massive fuckers from the Leinster team rocked in to try and buy some, and even those man mountains were given a flat no. They left empty handed, not even consoling themselves with a bottle of BOD’s finest. For shame.
