you will receive up to 5 different laminated menus detailing the whisky(s) they have available. If you are here, then obviously Japanese whisky is the way to go. quite simply, it is an amazing whisky bar with all the necessary attention paid to the details.

This bar was possibly the best place I drank in Japan. Me and my wife tried several great whiskies, both national and imported that I would not have found at home. Beyond the selection, our barman, Mr.Fujimoto was extremely helpful and great to chat with, speaking excellent English. I would definetly come back if I went to Kyoto again.

Wonderful bar with a great atmosphere and incredible selection, but the best part? The service! Bartenders are knowledgeable, speak some English and are very hospitable. They have perfected the art of being available for questions, yet unobtrusive. They provide menus in English with ages and prices and menus are categorized by Japanese whiskies, Scotch, Canadian and American, and Irish. They also have a mixed cocktails menu and a food menu. We were there on a Friday night and the place was busy, but not loud, and filled with couples or solo scotch and whisky enthusiasts. Great little bar in Kyoto because of the selection and service!

You cannot have a better place for whisky! Lots of choice, lots of description in the menu. Plenty of good choice, mostly Japanese whisky. Tasted a Nikka 21 years and it was a blast!!!! Yamazaki 12 years wasn't good at all and Akashi 5 years aged in a wine cask that was interresting. Cost me only 80 bucks for those three. But it's really dark and smooky (that's why the 4 out of 5 and nont 5 out of 5).

If I have one regret about a week-long stay in Kyoto, it is that we didn't find Bar Cordon Noir earlier in our visit, and we didn't end every evening there. We spent three perfect evenings enjoying the hospitality here. The whisky/whiskey selection is incredible. They have everything from excellent Japanese whiskies to bourbons to a rarely matched selection of Scotch whisky. They have the 200th Anniversary, special edition, 15-year Laphroaig (a favorite that is very hard to come by in the US anymore). They had rarities, too. But for me, I fell in love with the bar when I saw the 25-year Talisker. Is there anything more sublime? The atmosphere in the bar? Exactly what you want--low lit, but warm wooded ambiance. The cheese sampler? Perfectly selected. The service? Incredibly knowledgable, friendly, and appreciative. When in Kyoto, this is the place to be.
