This Kujira Ryukyu Whisky is 100% selected rice distilled and matured in first fill bourbon barrels for more than 24 years by Kumesen Shuzo in Okinawa. Okinawa is part of the Ryukyu Islands, which are a chain of subtropical islands located at the southernmost tip of Japan. Kujira Ryukyu Whisky is an utterly unique tropical style Japanese Whisky. Thanks to the island’s warm climate, whisky takes less time to mature and thus has a stronger aroma and a bolder taste.
