The Karuizawa distillery closed in 2000. In the years since, it's become one of the most coveted whiskeys from Japan, as its yearly output of 150,000 was the smallest in the country. This Karuizawa Whisky Collection includes nearly every expression they produced, from a bottle of Karuizawa 1960, one of only 41 ever sold, to more recent releases. Unlike many "collection" auctions, you don't have to buy it all at once — 290 individual bottles will be offered, providing buying opportunities at a variety of price ranges. The auction runs from April 5th through the 17th.
If you're looking for a gateway into the world of sipping rum, you can't go wrong with Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva Rum. It's crafted using pure sugar cane honey but isn't cloyingly sweet. Distilled in ancient copper pot stills and aged in small oak casks for up to twelve years it's a rum that can not only be the beginning of your rum education but is also a long time favorite of serious connoisseurs. It's delicious neat or as part of a cocktail typically reserved for whiskey.
Pod-based coffee systems are incredibly convenient. Convenient for us, that is — not for the environment. Halo Coffee Pods aim to change that. Unlike their plastic counterparts, they're 100% biodegradable yet still retain the freshness and flavor you demand. And you don't have to settle for second-rate brews to help save the planet, either, as they're the only coffee pods available with Kopi Luwak Diamond beans inside. Currently available exclusively for Nespresso systems.
