Malted Rice Whisky… something you’ve probably never had before.

Fukano Distillery has been operating in Hitoyoshi City since 1823 by five generations of the Fukano family. The current head of the business is Shigeruriku Fukano. Their primary product is Shōchū — an un-aged, lightly distilled spirit usually around 25% ABV. It’s spectacularly popular in Japan and has been produced there since the 16th century. Interestingly, since most of their products are based upon rice, sweet potatoes, and sugar — base ingredients low in sulphur — their stills are made of stainless steel.

As we said, the Fukano Distillery’s main product is Shōchū. Every once in a while they run their premium rice-based Shōchū through the stills one more time and set it aside in oak for aging. Fukano Japanese Rice Whisky 2017 Release is a limited edition of this unique spirit made from malted rice and aged in charred virgin oak. It’s a real pure-spirit Rice Whisky delivered at 42.5% ABV. It was judged a Top 20 Whisky of 2017.” Only 4400 bottles were produced and you can get one for yourself.

Japanese Whisky can act as an interesting comparison between Scotch and Bourbon, being a Scotch-style spirit matured in conditions with greater temperature variation closer to Kentucky.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Bright copper.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas are complex with coconut milk, toffee, and crisp tropical fruit.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is completely unique with Toasted Rice Crispy Treats, warmed spices, muddled fruits, and vanilla.

Long with note of tropical fruits — banana and coconut — and warm caramel.

Smartass corner:
Shōchū has an alcohol content higher than Wine and Saki, but less than traditional western distilled spirits — most often around 25%. It’s usually distilled once and can be made from just about anything. So think of it as a new Wine-Vodka.
