We selected & curated the following whiskey flights due to their boldness and ability to stand up to the richness of Wagyu beef. Their elevated alcohol level and fullness truly matches the intensity of Wagyu beef. A mature bourbon with the notes of caramel, oak and vanilla bourbon hold up and compliment a well-marbled cut, as does the peatiness of a Japanese style whisky. These following selections are sure to enhance your overall tasting experience. Enjoy!

Nikka Coffey Grain
Produced in Coffey stills which retains the character of the grains, aromas and flavors. Very difficult to operate and create an unconventional, creamy texture. Matured in old casks such as re-filled, remade and re-charred casks originally made from American Oak. Fruity flavors, vanilla, chamomile, spice, corn notes. Sweet and vibrant.
Blends together at least 10 malt and grain whiskies and five different cask types to create a pleasing, “harmonious” blend. Soft, round, elegant and fruity with peaks of floral notes. Notes of almond, dried fruit and nougat lead to spicy, complex finish
Single Malt and blended; just like Scotch. Spicy, vanilla, fruit (apricot, orange, pineapple), honeysuckle
Option 1: Whistle Pig Flight $21
The distillery uses what they call a “Triple Terroir” philosophy. This trademarked term means the grain (distilled on-site), water, and oak are sourced from the farm. The new oak barrels that all the whiskeys hit first are made from trees harvested in Vermont. The theory is that the shorter growing season develops more growth rings in the trees, adding flavor to the whiskeys.
Piggy Back 6 year
100% Rye mashbill. Spicy with notes of cacao, vanilla, citrus and leather.
Very bold and flavorful. Baking spices, butterscotch, vanilla, caramel, hint of mint
Aged for 12 years in American oak and then finished in Madeira, Sauternes and Port barrels. Rich fruit and spice flavors. Rye spice, winter fruit, caramel, honey, dark chocolate finish
Option 2: $12

Blended rye that is aged a minimum of 2 years. Balance of rye spice and bright botanical notes. Cinnamon, gingersnaps, juniper, mint and wildflower honey.

Originally distilled in Maryland; purchased by Heaven Hill in the mid-2000s. Earthy, floral-forward, plenty of sweetness to balance the spice. Higher proof (110), yet very palatable. Cherry cola, vanilla, caramel and chocolate.
Sazerac Antique: $45
All whiskeys in this flight are barrel proof and hail from the iconic Buffalo Trace distillery.
Barrel proof wheated bourbon. Aged just shy of 13 years; 124 proof. Dark fruit, musty oak, and sweet accents. Full bodied finish.
