Kujira Whisky 12 years old Sherry Cask is a single grain whose originality is to be elaborated from 100% long indica rice fermented with yeasts such as whisky and black Koji, a variety unique to the Okinawa islands, according to the ancestral distillation method inherited from the awamori, the traditional local spirit. Distilled, aged and bottled in Japan, this single grain is a creation of the historic Shinzato Shuzo distillery located in southern Japan in the tropical Okinawa archipelago formerly called the Ryukyu Kingdom.

 

Both whisky and awamori, the single grains of rice are grouped together under the name Ryukyu whiskies and represent an enriching blend of aging skills. Kujira Whisky is a blend of single grains aged 12 years in Sherry casks only in a subtropical climate whose influence is expressed through a tasting profile balanced between sweetness and complexity.

 

At the opening it is at first the notes of rum, cognac, molasses and corn that are expressed in the mouth followed by the sweetness of the fruity aromas of blueberry and dried fruit. On the finish, one notes the lightness and sweetness of its aromatic profile that lingers until the last moment.

 

The history of Ryukyu whiskies began in 1989 under the impetus of the Kumesen Syuzo distillery founded in 1952 and joined by the dean of the distilleries of the Shinzato Shuzo region founded in 1846, with the desire to create a spirit combining the know-how of rice distillation with the tradition of whisky with aging in oak casks instead of earthenware jars, the kame, used for Awamori.

Our tasting experience

Kujira 12 years old reveals an aromatic palette that is both classic and surprising, characterized by a round and sweet nose with typical single-grain notes such as coconut and vanilla, but also the presence of caramelized notes and dried fruits inherited from aging in sherry barrels. On the palate, the rather light attack in the mouth with aromas of puffed rice precedes an explosion of complex and greedy flavours such as coconut, almond paste, but also fruity aromas of red fruits, grenadine and apricot and a hint of lemon. Its suave texture highlights woody notes and lingers after tasting in a long and soft finish without any bitterness.
