Rare mysterious rice Whisky from Japan
 
In the mythical land of Hitoyoshi, there’s an ancient distillery called Fukano, surrounded by the famous hot springs and the aura of the Aoi Aso shrine. Fukano is mostly known for its legendary Sake and Shochu, but they’re not shy about their Whisky. (This rice distillate can’t be called Whisky in Japan, but we’re not in Japan, so it’s okay.) The magical river Kuma is the DNA of this delicacy, and presented in a beer-like bottle, this is one-of-a-kind Whisky.
 
Part of a limited edition foursome (together with Vault Reserve #2, Fukano 6000 and Jikan), the Numero Uno, or “Ichiban” in Japanese, is a combo of Whiskies between the ages 3 and 11 years old. Some of the Whisky spent its time between oak casks and special tanks for up to 16 years. Combining different tanks, Fukano created this fun expression and bottled only 5,443 flasks. This Japanese rice Whisky is a mildly Sherry-influenced version of the Vault Reserve.

Japan is the second biggest producer of single malt Whisky in the world. Much to general surprise.

Brooke
Brooke,
Great nose which differs from the palate component. On the palate it has more of an astringency followed by herbal qualities. I got more fruit and honey on the nose than the palate.

Sonali,
Definitely interesting. The nose is warm and inviting, very heavy on it's sherry notes. Flavor profile is smokey and light, but also showcases a distinct plum flavor (reminiscent of plum wine without sweetness or viscosity). Finishes spicy with a touch of sweetness. More of a novelty experience than something to invest in. Lost a bit of nuance with water.

Almost Islay in style, good scotch taste and a refined finish

Robert,
Its a unique flavor... light with a bit of a metallic edge for me. Certainly not heavy or rich. Bottom line: there are better out there for half the price.
 
Jason
Jason,
A fun dram with a sweet apple nose and general fruitiness, the initial tongue is of candy strawberries and a fleshy fruit flavor that develops on the tongue with a VERY slight oak and cinnamon finish that pleasantly lingers.
 
David
David,
It's a little hot. The Sherry is prominent in the middle and works very well. Dark fruit and black pepper on the finish. Overall, it's bold but tastes a bit young. With a few more years of rest I think those flavors would marry and result in a much more drinkable and balanced dram. Nice, but there are much better options out there at this price point.
 
Art
Art,
absolutely loved this, it's sherry casking is very prominent in the taste. I wouldn't drink it every day, but for a treat, this one should be considered!

Jamie,
Flavorful. More caramel scent and vanilla taste than what I expected.
 
JODY
JODY,
I had to review what the flavor should taste like. The Whiskey is light on the tongue. I taste the sweet then comes the spice. Don't taste plum or honey. It will do, but don't think will order again. Will have friends try and see what they think. Thankyou

Just the right amount of sweetness and good mix of spice with fruit. Definitely a very good whiskey
