Top reviews for Kujira Ryukyu 8 Year Old Whisky:

― Super unique whisky. Rice based whisky which makes more sense coming from Japan which has a long history of rice culture of alcohol making. Very enjoyable!

― Pleasantly surprised by the sweetness of this. I will definitely be back for seconds and thirds. Wonderful conversation piece, not like other whisky's.

― I got Flaviar's Whiskies of the World 24-sample Advent Calendar box and Kujira Ryukyu was my winner. It was a heavenly taste and scent on day three and no other sample beat that memory. I ordered a bottle and it's currently out of stock. :(
