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.

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.
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.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
