Unprecedented marriage of peat and Mizunara
 
Kaiyo (‘ocean’ in Japanese) was created by Master Blender Jeff Karlovitch, the Whisky veteran of Bunnahabhain, the parent company. Kaiyo Whisky is a unique concoction in many ways: it’s double-distilled and double-matured; it’s incredibly rare and exclusive; it spent some time travelling the seas to mature in the dynamic maritime realm of sloshing, temperature changes and varying air pressure; and it’s an unprecedented combo of peat and Mizunara oak.
 
Kaiyo’s peated Whisky is a wonderful and lush expression that’s first matured in Madeira casks for two years, before it’s shipped to the ocean in new Mizunara oak for more than a couple of years. The Spirit is a magnificent balance of Ardbeg-level peat and Madeira influence, a 92 proof palatial experience of smoke, oceanic breeze, wood, and fruit. It’s as if a Scotsman from Islay had a Japanese mother and worked on a cargo ship. Bold, intriguing, and colorful.

Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
