From the Kumamoto Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan, the Ohishi Single Brandy Cask is a whisky distilled from rice and aged in ex-brandy casks. The Ohishi Distillery uses at least 30% gohyakumanishi rice grown on its own fields, rounded out with mochi rice Kumamoto. Founded in 1872, this is one of the oldest distilleries in Japan, located on the banks of the Kuma River, a water source that is prized for its purity.

Tasting Notes

"The Ohishi Brandy Cask pours a light straw color and lands on the palate with a startling fruitiness. The spirit tastes of pear, green apple, and a bit of elderflower. An unusual whisky, it's reminiscent of early fall and easy to enjoy neat."
