Kumano Whisky Mizunara is a pure malt whisky blend of specially selected Japanese and Scottish whiskies which is then finished in Mizunara (Japanese Oak) casks.
The Kishu Kumano distillery is nestled in the mountains of Wakayama, Japan, alongside the famed pilgrimage trail, Kumano Kodo. The carefully crafted whisky rests in Mizunara casks amidst the forests and mountains of remote Japan. The cask and terroir impart an unique flavour and “forest feel” to the whisky.
Nose: Fragrant citrus blossom and baked apple, with a hint of balsa wood.
Palate: Floral notes, forest floor, apricot and kumquat developing in the background.
Finish: Slightly peppery, earthy vanilla pod and a whiff of pine.
