Ohishi Sherry Cask Whisky
Ohishi Distillery was founded in 1872, located in the Southwest of Japan, in a beautifully mountainous and scenic countryside. Ohishi sits near the tiny village of Mizukami, and is the closest distillery to the source of the Kuma River, one of the fastest flowing rivers in all of Japan, renowned and prized for its superior water quality. Ohishi has been a family business for five generations, primarily known for its sake & shochu production.
Ohishi Sherry Cask consists of whisky aged 3-30 years in various sizes of sherry cask, and blended together for product consistency. While the prior single sherry cask release, Ohishi Single Sherry Cask #1212, elicits a flood of rich and nutty sherry tones on the palate, the blended sherry cask is a more high toned and angular expression with bright acidity, gentle heat, and notes of maple syrup and stone fruit on the finish. The advantage of blending multiple sherry casks together not only gives consistency to the bottlings, but also continuity.
