Japanese single malt elegance.

Ohishi is a hidden Japanese gem nestled in the mountainous countryside, along with the banks of the Kuma River, one of Japan’s fastest flowing rivers, also known for its pristine water quality. The family-run operation was established in 1872.

It may come as no surprise that Ohishi are known first and foremost for their Sake & Shochu, but they also craft one hell of a rice Whisky. Ohishi swaps barley for rice to craft their single malts, and they grow a unique strain of rice for production called “gohyakumanishi” (5 million stones) and use koi to cultivate their crop.

The Whisky is distilled in traditional Japanese stainless steel pot stills before getting some beauty rest in ex-sherry and brandy casks, in the mountainous Japanese countryside. Being aged at such high altitudes yields an elegant Sherry symphony.

This Ohishi Sherry Cask is a blend of casks anywhere from 3 to 25 years old. Expect notes of dried tropical fruit, toasted hazelnut, golden raisins, and sweet marzipan. It’s quite the Japanese sensation too, earning itself “92 Excellent, Highly Recommended” from the Beverage Tasting Institute in 2017, and “92 Points, Excellent, Highly Recommended” for the Japanese Whisky category at the USC Awards.

Matthew
Matthew,
So yummy!
 
Douglas
Douglas,
Loved this one in my tasting box, this is my first Japanese whiskey. To our surprise it was stocked at our local store and it’s heavy in my rotation now. There is something extra round about the flavor, probably due to the rice factor. Love.
 
John
John,
This was my favorite of the box: good aroma, better taste and finish, more to my liking.
 
Liz
Liz,
This is meant to be sipped neat. One drop of water turned a cherry floral saki like delight into rubbing alcohol.
 
Aimee
Aimee,
Has a heavy flavor and leaves an aftertaste.
 
Raymond
Raymond,
One of my new favorite japanese whiskeys. Very subtle floral notes which allows the sherry to really come out. For those who are into japanese whiskey this should be on your list for an everyday dram.
 
Brooke
Brooke,
Smooth from start to finish. The finish has a great amount of spice balanced with strong notes of vanilla and oak.
 
Sunil
Sunil,
Not a sherry fan, but not horrible.
 
Jason
Jason,
Best thing made out of rice that I've had in recent memory. Also the brownest. Lean but round, this shows tons of sakura flavor and aroma. Assertively, deliciously fruity and flowery throughout with a touch of spice at the end. A lovely drink and a superb surprise. From the "A Tale of Three Whiskies" box, tasted in a Glencairn glass.
 
Tim
Tim,
Tasty. Mild nose - wet grass and glue. Thin bodied. Strong body like stamp glue (in a good way). Spice notes come strong on finish. Sherry comes around at end.
 
Joe
Joe,

Aaron
Aaron,
Smooth. I'm not a huge Sherry fan so take my review with a grain of salt. Very sherry heavy.

Very nice, and kind of "sweet'"
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Very smooth. The taste isn’t very complex but I think that’s what makes it good and unique. It’s a great Sherry for you friends that don’t drink strong whiskeys.

Sonali,
Cherry + Cucumber + Nail Polish Remover = Not my particular brand of whisky Perhaps this tastes better in a cocktail? Overall, quite a bland flavor profile with a terrible association to ethanol.

Great sherry taste, with a speyside mouthfeel and slight heat
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding balanced, Rice Whisky with a delicate birth; while a rich & balanced life leads to a delicate finish with notes of cocoa & grain.
 
Jason
Jason,
An very slight oaky nose that turns into a sweet whiskey with a slight warmth on the back of the mouth.
 
Jamie

Smooth, but light. Strangely nondescript.

Good. Tastes like saki
 
Greg
Greg,
This is really good! Great on the nose and the taste is smooth and full of flavor as well. A little sweeter than I normally like, but the spice comes through to give it decent grit.

Eric
Eric,
This is my first sherried whisky, and I really like it! This one is definitely quite a departure from the other Japanese whiskies, but in this case, different is good! Very interesting nose and tastes. Not very complex, but very good. I'll be picking up a bottle to spend more time with it.
 
James
James,
Not bad but not for me.

Hmmm, flowery
