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.

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
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.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
