Kōriyama is a Japanese whisky that seduces with its smooth, harmonious aromatic profile, featuring gourmand notes of vanilla and almond that subtly reveal themselves on the nose. On the palate, you'll discover a fruity indulgence with nuances of juicy apricot and caramel, wrapped in a round, silky texture. The finish, meanwhile, offers woody accents slightly lifted by notes of roasted cocoa, adding a touch of complexity.

The making of Kōriyama is a true work of art. It is made from a blend of grain whiskies (corn-based) and the distillery's own malts (7%) distilled twice in traditional pot stills, a traditional method that gives the whisky exceptional depth. To perfect its character, this whisky is then carefully aged in Bourbon and new American oak casks, where it acquires richness and balance.

Kōriyama, whose name pays homage to the town where the distillery is nestled, perfectly embodies the Japanese spirit, symbolized by the Koi carp, emblem of determination and courage.
