Delicate Nippon Whisky with a heart of Scotland.
 
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 traveling the seas to mature in the dynamic maritime realm of sloshing, temperature changes, and varying air pressure; and it spent some time in the highly exclusive Mizunara oak.
 
Kaiyo’s Mizunara Oak is a 86 Proof unchill filtered delight with no age statement, nor do they reveal the distillery. But that isn’t important if you’re dealing with an intriguing experiment. The maturing in Mizunara oak brings intensive flavors from this Spirit and the barrels that spent several years seafaring gave it a light and complex character with sensations that could fool us into thinking we’re sipping on one of the “Glens”. It’s like an enigmatic sailor who refuses to reveal his history, simply saying “Figure me out”.

Ivan
Ivan,
I like it, oily, oaky, sweet, not too smoky. Not very spicy, doesn't linger on the tongue for long. Another review suggested to let it roll around in your mouth for a bit, i agree.

Not very smooth
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Sweet, cinnamon, clove, oak, smoke, white pepper. A bit of ice helped tone down the sweetness and bring out the oak. Not a very long finish. It’s decent, but a little too sweet for my taste.
 
Mark
Mark,
Dark honey with a solid oak flavor. Better when you roll it around a bit. Slightly sweet.
