Kaiyō Japanese Mizunara Oak
Kaiyō // Japan
Kaiyō, meaning "ocean", is a blended malt whisky distilled in Japan from unrevealed sources. It is matured in Japanese Mizunara oak barrels crafted by the Ariake cooperage in Kyoto for an undisclosed amount of time. The whisky then begins a sea voyage from Osaka, Japan for up to three months allowing the whisky to ocean-mature. The movement, temperature variation, and air pressure all play a factor in this final step. The whisky is un-chillfiltered and bottled at 43% ABV.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
