Best $40 Pour of Whiskey 

Suntory Yamazaki sherry cask, Yusho

Barkeep Alex Bachman keeps a fascinating collection of spirits, in particular a bunch of fine, uncommon Japanese whiskeys. Among them, this marvelous blend of 12- to 15-year-old single malts, aged in Oloroso sherry barrels, will sprout wings from your back. Only 16,000 bottles were released worldwide, so secure yourself a sugar daddy/mama and toast your good fortune with this dark and fruity but by no means cloying whiskey, which rolls waves of successive flavors across the palate: prune, cherry, oak, and chocolate. It's a whiskey that keeps on giving, lingering in the mind long after it washes over the tongue.
