Distilled at the Kumesen Distillery in the sub-tropical island of Okinawa from Indicia rice and Okinawan black koji, this spectacular Japanese Whisky was aged in both Manzanilla and Fino Sherry casks for 18 long years. This is a light-bodied Whisky but don’t be fooled: it doesn’t compromise on the flavor in the slightest.

Why do we think this one’s so special? It’s a great way to taste the Sherry influence without all the boldness of a Malt Whisky. The unmatched flavor profile was awarded 91 points at the 2021 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

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.
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!
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
