Kura The Whisky

Kura the Whisky (“kura” means a storehouse) is one of the most unique Japanese Whiskies, whose life begins in peat marshes of Hokkaido (very similar to Scotland). Heavily peated Spirit then joins other Okinawa Single Malts in a careful blend after it spends years in American oak casks.
