bar miyako and legent bourbon

皆様、連休はいかがお過ごしでしたか?楽しいお休みは終ってしまいましたが、#barmiyako には楽しいお酒が沢山ありますので、どうかご安心を!今週のご紹介は、その中でもバーボン好きに特にお勧めのサントリー日米共同開発ウィスキー「リージェント(Legent)」です。



The long weekend is over, but have no fear! bar miyako has lots of fun and exciting spirits to get you through the week, including Legent, a unique blended bourbon created in collaboration with Japan’s Suntory and US’ Beam Suntory, maker of Jim Beam.

Fred Noe, a seventh-generation Master Distiller of Jim Beam and Shinji Fukuyo, the fifth Chief Blender for Suntory, worked together on Legent, which is a blend of three Jim Beam bourbons: one finished in traditional oak and two which are secondary cask finished in sherry and red wine barrels. The different casks give the bourbon layers of different flavors, such as fruit and spice and oak, making it a complex but well-balanced (and lovely) spirt. Please drop by for more details or for a taste if your interest is piqued!

This week, bar miyako is closed on Monday, February 24 for a national holiday, but open as usual from 7pm to 1am on all other weekdays and from 7pm to 12 on Saturday. Hope to see you all back at the bar soon!

bar miyako and writers’ tears

遅ればせながら、#barmiyako にピッタリなお酒が入りました!「ライターズティアーズ(物書きの涙)」というちょっぴりメランコリーな名前のアイリッシュウィスキー。シングルモルトとシングルポットスチルのブレンドをアメリカンバーボンオークで熟成したもので、ハニーやバニラの甘さの中に(気のせいか)ほんのり涙のようなしょっぱさが入り混じる魅力的な一杯です。


今週の #barmiyako ですが、2月11日は祝日(建国記念日)のため定休日となりますが、その他の平日の19時〜25時、土曜の19時〜24時まで営業しておりますので皆さまのお越しを心よりお待ち申し上げております!

Belatedly, a perfect spirit for #barmiyako : an Irish whiskey with a melancholy name, Writers’ Tears.

A blend of single malt and single pot still whiskeys aged in American bourbon oak casks, it’s light and sweet with a tinge of (teary?) saltiness. To everyone who has felt like crying (or actually cried) when rushing to meet a deadline, coming up with story ideas or otherwise paying tribute to the written word — Cheers!

This week, the bar is closed on Tuesday, February 11 for a national holiday, but open from 7pm to 1am all other weekdays and from 7pm to midnight on Saturday, so hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
