About Makoto Single Grain 23 Year Old Japanese Whisky

Kumesen Syuzo was founded in 1952, getting their distilling start producing Awamori, a distilled alcoholic beverage indigenous made with Indica rice and unique to Okinawa islands of Japan, also known as Ryuku islands. Around 1989, this innovative distillery started to mature their spirit in oak barrels, creating a unique kind of ji-whisky in its own category.

This Single grain whisky, aged 23 years in ex-bourbon casks, from the Kumesen Distillery in Okinawa Japan. Expect notes of ginger, spice, terrific woody notes, and a nice distant buttery caramel that comes through to the middle and end. Dark chocolate touches of cinnamon, some hard lemon candy, and melted caramel sweetness. The finish is heavy in sweetness, with lasting notes of licorice (those same notes that started as dark chocolate).

About Japanese Whisky

Although maybe not be the first Spirit you would think of when Japan is mentioned; the Japanese make one of the best types of whisky in the world. It’s heavily influenced by scotch but with smoother and delicate notes.


The history of the Japanese whisky is not even a century old, but in this short time, the Japanese blended and single malts have taken over the world by storm and can easily go against their whisk(e)y counterparts from across the globe.
