Japanese triple treat.

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 Whiskey. 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, employing Koi Carp to control weeds.

Ohishi Islay Cask Whisky is a smoky-sweet treat that was fully matured in ex-Brandy casks, and finished for 8 months in barrels that held Islay Scotch. And we're talking heavily peated Scotch, which beautifully translates to Ohishi. Now, they don't say from which distillery the cask came, but with such sensational scents and flavors, does it really matter? What this bottle brings is a triple treat of Japanese Whisky, Brandy and peaty Islay Scotch.
