Love Japanese Whisky? So Does Sushisamba with Huge Japanese Whisky List

Sushisamba, the restaurant that mixes Japanese sushi and the sexy waxed culture of Brazil, has announced that they will be unveiling the largest Japanese Whisky list in Las Vegas and perhaps the largest in America. “We are constantly seeking things that complement and bring something special to the SUSHISAMBA brand,” said Shimon “Bonzai” Bokovza, CEO of Sushisamba’s parent company. “After conquering sake for the past 15 years we are looking forward to expand our offering and introduce Japanese Whisky to our guests in a new and exciting way.”

The Whisky list has been curated around these three Founding Fathers and it features 26 Whiskies without age statements all the way up to Whiskies aged 28 years, in all varieties: Single Malt, Pure Malt, Blended Whisky, Blended Malt Whisky, Sherry Cask Whisky, Whiskies that have been distilled in the Japanese Alps, or Whiskies that have been distilled in the most northern island of Hokkaido where the distillery is nestled between mountains and the Sea of Japan. The impressive collection also includes some rare award-winning selections such as Akashi 5YR Sherry Cask, the Mars 3 & 25, Nikka Taketsuru 17yr Pure Malt – a line dedicated to the founder of Nikka.

“Japanese Whisky is traditionally paired with chocolate, cheese and smoked meats,” said SUSHISAMBA Executive Chef Joel Versola. “The real excitement here is that we’re going much wider with our pairings. There is an element of surprise”

Along with the whisky, they have created a new menu to compliment getting completely wasted on Japanese whisky:
