Kujira 12 Year Old Sherry Cask is a single grain whisky whose originality is to be made from 100% indica long grain rice fermented with yeast like whisky and black Koji, a variety unique to the Okinawa islands, distilled in traditional stills according to the manufacturing method inherited from awamori, the traditional spirit of the region.

This Kujira whisky is a blend of single grains aged for 12 years in Sherry casks only, under a subtropical climate whose influence is expressed through a tasting profile balanced between sweetness and complexity.

At the opening it is first the notes of rum, cognac, molasses and corn that express themselves followed in the mouth by the sweetness of fruity aromas of blueberry and dried fruit. In the finish, we note the lightness and sweetness of its aromatic profile that persists until the last moment.

Distilled, aged and bottled in Japan, this single grain is a creation of the Kumesen Syuzo distillery located in the south of Japan in the tropical archipelago of Okinawa, formerly known as the kingdom of Ryukyu. 

Both whisky and awamori, the single grain rice whiskies also called Ryukyu whiskies, represent an enriching blend of age-old know-how.

The brand Kujira Whisky

Pioneer of a new kind of whisky, Kujira innovates in grain whiskies by exploiting a cereal hitherto unused for whisky and more traditionally associated with other Japanese spirits. 

Grain whiskies made from rice, these whiskies also called Ryukyu whiskies from the name of the ancient kingdom of Okinawa, draw their roots from the ancestral know-how of Okinawa distilleries in the production of Awamori.

Our tasting experience of Kujira 12 year old Sherry Cask.

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.
