A warm and surprising Single Grain Whisky from the foothills of Mount Fuji in Japan.
Mount Fuji is an icon of Japanese culture around the world. The majestic, snow-capped stratovolcano sits bout sixty mile east of Tokyo. But much closer in the southern foothills is the town of Fuji where the melted glacial waters from Mount Fuji spring out from the rocks. It is in this perfect place that Fuji Takasago and his brewmaster Noto Tōji decided to build the Miyazaki Saki and Shochu facility in 1831. They have grown slowly and honorably in the same location for nearly two hundred years, expanding into a range of quality Spirits.
Teitessa is the house brand of Whisky from Miyazaki and Iconic Spirits is listed as the sole importer. Teitessa 30 Year Old Grain Japanese Whisky is made from a single grain — most likely rice fermented using the koji process. The aging barrels listed include Spanish oak, American white oak, and Rothan oak where this gentle Japanese Spirit has aged for three decades.

The flavor profile is sweet and light with vanilla, caramel, and an interesting umami note.
The finish is relatively long and just a bit dry.
