Fukui, Japan

Kirin Distillery Co

Fuji-Sanroku Signature Blend Whisky

A well made clean and flavoursome Japanese whisky coming in at 50%ABV. An interesting story about the source of the water for the distillery which is near Mt Fuji. The purity of the water is always a key issue in the making of quality whisky. As the story goes the water used at Fuji Gotemba distillery is taken from 3 underground bores that tap into underground streams which are 100 metres deep. Analysis has shown that the water used today fell on Mt. Fuji as snow 50 years ago. — a month ago

Dassai 23 Junmai Daiginjo Yamaguchi Sake

Behold, the Desai 23, my favorite of them all. Abv 16%. The numbers designate the amount of polishing of the rice - the remaining amount of the original kernel. Hence lower is better, and hence the price difference. — 13 hours ago

As this warmed above 50 degrees the flavors became quite complex and interesting. Herbal, vegetal, but unique and distinct flavors came out. Creamy in texture with umami in spades. Excellent — 20 days ago
