Sensational Japanese NAS delicacy.
On the Japanese island of Kyushu, next to the pure river Kuma, there's a unique family-run Ohishi distillery, founded in 1872, uses sorcery to turn rice into Whisky. Yes, rice. Where distilleries usually use barley, Ohishi uses Japan's favorite grain to create this superb sake-like Spirit. And not just any type: they use mochi rice from Kumamoto, and add gohyakumanishi rice, grown through organic farming and employs koi carp to control weeds.
Ohishi's Brandy Single Cask is a blend of a small number of ex-Brandy barrels for an undetermined amount of time, which makes it a NAS (No Age Statement) expression. NAS is all the rage these days as it gives Whisky-makers freedom to experiment and find new awesome flavors. This bottle is a wonderful blend of Japanese and Scottish tradition and a must-have addition to every home bar.
