Ryujin Mizunara Cask Japanese Whisky
This whisky is aged 12 months is Mizunara casks, a native Japanese oak from Hokkaido. This tree must grow to be at least 200 years old before it can be harvested for use in a cask barrel, making it one of the scarcest—and some say most flavorful—oaks in the world.
The Japanese dragon is a symbol of power, strength, and authority believed to bring luck. Ryūjin, the deity of the sea in Japanese myths, is one of the most important of all Japanese dragons. He represents the power of the ocean and was a patron of Japan. Considering that the sea and seafood are important for Japanese livelihood, Ryūjin plays a significant role in Japanese culture and history, and is believed to be one of the forefathers of the Japanese imperial dynasty. Recognizing the most significant dragon in Japanese culture gave rise to the bold and vibrant flavors of Ryujin Whisky.
Tasting Notes: Fruity and floral notes throughout the taste, with honey, orange peel, and white chocolate flavors. Mellow finish with a hint of oak.
