Founded in 1952, Kumesen Syuzo started on distilling alcoholic beverages, unique to Okinawa islands of Japan, also know as Ryuku islands. Then around 1989, this innovative distillery started to age them in oak barrels, creating a unique kind of ji-whisky in its own category, thus named it the Ryukyu Whisky. With 20 years maturing in bourbon casks, Kujira as a single grain whisky provides a wonderful taste profile that has distinguished itself from its malt counterparts and creates a refreshing choice for spirits lovers.
  • Nose: herbs, various plum fruits hint, prune, mint candy.
  • Palate: balanced light body, sweet, vanilla, spice, smoky woodiness.

    Subtle and sophisticated

    Fantastic and sophisticated. One of the best whiskeys i have ever had. If you appreciate delicate, sophisticate, and complex without overpowering peat (and nothing else), this is your whiskey.
