KUJIRA Ryukyu Whisky 20 Years Old

Founded in 1952, Kumesen Syuzo started on distilling Awamori which is a distilled alcoholic beverage indigenous made with Indica rice and unique to Okinawa islands of Japan, also know as Ryuku islands. Then around 1989, this innovative distillery started to age Awamori in oak barrels, creating a unique kind of ji-whisky in its own category, thus named it the Ryukyu Whisky. With 20 years maturing in bourbon casks, Kujira as a single grain whisky made entirely of rice provides a wonderful taste profile that has  distinguished itself from its malt counterparts and creates a refreshing choice for spirits lovers.

Taste Notes
Nose: herbs, various plum fruits hint, prune, mint candy.
Palate: balanced light body, sweet, vanilla, spice, smoky woodiness.
Finish: licorice, Japanese pepper, medium finish
