Kujira

Founded in 1952, Kumesen Syuzo started on distilling Awamori which is a distilled alcoholic beverage indigenous made with Indica rice and unique to Okinawa islands of Japan, also know as Ryuku islands. Then around 1989, this innovative distillery started to age Awamori 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 made entirely of rice provides a wonderful taste profile that has distinguished itself from its malt counterparts and creates a refreshing choice for spirits lovers.

Kujira Single Grain 30 Y.O.

Ryukyu Whisky is aged in selected Sherry, Bourbon and White Oak Virgin casks for more than 30 years in Okinawa, a beautiful southern tropical island of Japan with warm and humid weather all year round.

This unique expression brings full body and smooth experience, with notes of ripe berries which come to the fore while woody tannins that have been ripened for years. A hint of nectar and woody character linger long after taste. Decades of maturation gives off deep woody scents of toasted oak barrels, and leaves a pleasantly strong flavour and long-lasting sweetness.

  • Tasting Notes:
    o Nose: Nectar, caramel, heavy wood smoke of antique furniture

    o Finish: Little nectars dotted among smell of wooden barrels with a long lingering finish of sweetness.
