What does Kikori taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Kikori Japanese Whisky. It's based on all Kikori drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Kikori before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

The process used during the production is almost identical to the process used to produce Shochu.

In order to have the right to use the word “Whiskey” on its label, Kikori had to convince the Alcohol & Tobacco Trade Bureau (TTB).

Kikori means "The Woodsman" referring to Visu the Woodsman, from a Japanese folk tale.
