And parts of Asia generally. I noticed the whiskey culture is pretty strong in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau … and to a lesser extent Mainland China and Thailand (of the places I've been). In fact, I didn't really start drinking scotch consistently until I lived over there for a bit. A bottle of Macallan 18 (or something else appropriately conspicuous) on the table is kind of a thing.

Hmmm. I've never had this, may give it a try. I'd say about 90% of the wine I drink is red … and with sushi probably a pinot or shiraz of some sort, but I do like a crisp, oak-y chardonnay.
