Rare Sherried delicacy from Kyushu. 

On the Japanese island of Kyushu, next to the pure river Kuma, there's a unique family-run Ohishi distillery, founded in 1872, that uses sorcery to turn rice into Whisky. Yes, rice. Where distilleries usually use barley, Ohishi uses Japan's favorite grain to create a superb sake-like Spirit. And not just any type: they use mochi rice from Kumamoto, and add gohyakumanishi rice, grown through organic farming, employing koi carp to control weeds. It sounds like a lot of work, but it pays off greatly.

This expression is quite a rare delicacy that spent 8 years in Sherry casks from Spain. Now, maturing your Whisky in Sherry casks isn’t exactly cheap, and it’s really hard to find the perfect ones worthy of your juice. Luckily, Ohishi has been enriching their Whisky in Sherry casks for nearly four decades, so they know a guy who knows a guy that has the best casks. This exotic delicacy boasts dark fruity flavors and lovely cinnamon-tobacco dance.

Kenneth,
Sherry forward, mild oak, and a bit of spice.

David,
Spicy! I originally thought it was the alcohol burn but quickly came to realize that the dram has some spice behind it!
