Kaiyo The Kuri Japanese Whisky
This unique bottling from Kaiyo is one of the first of its kind - a whisky aged full term in first fill Japanese "Kuri" chestnut barrels. After 7 years of aging in Japan, the barrels go to sea for 3 months, as all of Kaiyo's whiskies do. It is then taken back to Japan and bottled at 46% abv.
The Kuri opens with drying wood notes, with an incense like spice. Fragrant notes of lavender are balanced by raisin and eucalyptus. The finish is long with hints of ripe raspberry.
