Avid fans alike should be familiar with Nonjatta. For those of you who are not, this is arguably, in my opinion, one of the most all-embracing blogs about Japanese whisky, and the relating scene in Tokyo.
Nonjatta, maintained by Chris Bunting, a journalist currently residing in Tokyo, provides an in depth look into a wide range of Japanese whiskies, reader reviews, Tokyo bar and shop reports, and general history about the Japanese dram. Just like “Whiskies R Us”, Nonjatta is completely independent and tells it like it is. Its local knowledge of bars in Tokyo, in particular Shinjuku, such as the Nikka Blender’s bar and Zoetrope is extensive. My favourite, which I thoroughly recommend to all Whiskies R Us readers, is to take a look at Nonjatta’s detailed malt mapping. The map outlines and reviews single malt bars of Tokyo and provides users with clear, easy-to-understand shop details.
Also, there is information on Tokyo's 2011 Whisky Live event which I'm sure you will all appreciate reading. Great resources and articles for all of you visiting Tokyo.
When visiting Tokyo and in search of a dram, be sure to check out Nonjatta. For quick access into the Tokyo scene, I have added links on the right sidebar of Whiskies R Us.
