Character Goatson
A cosmopolitan Japanese Whisky blend.
 
The Chugoku Juzo distillery was founded a century ago near Hiroshima and has been making Sake and Shochu since. Then, the Nineties came, and they decided to import cool foreign Whiskies, blend them and mature them in Japan. Since Japanese laws are pretty chill, they can be sold as Japanese Whisky. A neat trick, but it aint’ a con: most of the blenders are pretty straight-forward about the Whiskies they use.
 
In Togouchi’s case, its ingredients are Scotch and Canadian grain Whiskey. What’s awesome here is what they do with those Spirits. There’s a 360 meters long railway tunnel drilled through a mountain in Nishi Chugoku Sanchi that was never actually completed. The temperature is constantly 57°F and humidity is 80% all the time. One man’s failed public transport project is another man’s maturing facility. This particular bottle is 18 years old and is premium as hell. Expect lush oak notes and bright fruity touches.

Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
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.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
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.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
