Kujira 15 Year old Japanese Ryukyu Whisky 750ml
This whisky expression from Masahiro Shuzo, one of the oldest distilleries in Okinawa, is a bottled masterpiece. Black Koji, a traditional ingredient exclusively found along the picturesque coasts of the Ryukyu island chain, is first mixed with 100% pure Indica rice to create the base of this dish.
The mellow flavors and silky texture that come from 15 years of age in Sherry, Bourbon, and American White Oak casks are accelerated and revitalized by the humid island air. A long, clean finish ultimately gives way to the wonderfully smooth end product, which has notes of candied fruits and a complex coalescence of sweet, spice, and smoke.
