Continuing on last week’s theme of limited edition Johnnie Walkers, we are thrilled to inform you that we have restocked Johnnie Walker Black Label “The Director’s Cut,” created in special collaboration with Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi cult classic, Blade Runner.
With an ABV of 49 degrees befitting 2049, this limited edition blended whisky “combines clouds of neo-noir smoke with a gentle glow of neon sweetness,” while “sublime sparks of otherworldly fruit emerge from the undercurrents of pepper.” Wow. If this is for you, please come in while supplies last!
#barmiyako is open as usual this week from 7pm to 1am on weekdays and from 7pm to 12 midnight on Saturdays, so hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
Our feature this week is on Blanton’s Bourbon, the “super premium” single barrel Kentucky bourbon.
In addition to the sweet and creamy flavor, Blanton is, as some of you may be aware, the painkiller of choice for John Wick, the eponymous antihero of the neo-noir action thriller franchise played by Keanu Reeves.
In the first film, you see John downing the standard Blanton’s (photo left) and in the second film, he has the special reserve green label edition (unavailable in the US) in Italy (photo right). The much anticipated third installment of the series opened in the US on May 17 but unfortunately, won’t arrive in Japan until October … For those of you in Japan, why not alleviate some of the pain of waiting with some premium Blanton’s?
