On the nose, delicate notes of apples, pears, tropical fruits and spices intertwine harmoniously. On the palate, it unfolds all its splendor with gourmand, oaky notes, juicy figs, walnuts and a hint of butterscotch. The finish is smooth and long, the pleasant fruity and herbaceous fragrance lingering delicately, while the woody texture offers a refined experience.
Kujira Inari is distilled from 100% Indica rice, offering a unique taste experience, enriched by the use of Okinawan "black Koji", an essential ingredient in rice fermentation. Aged in virgin white oak casks in the USA, this single grain offers additional depth and complexity to its flavor profile.
"Inari", meaning the god of rice cultivation in Japanese mythology, is the perfect name for this whisky, which draws its richness from this essential ingredient.
