Kujira 20 year old Ryukyu Japanese Rice Whisky, 43%

Price: $350 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Toddy-like aromas of ginger and honey, along with vanilla bean, sugared pecans, cinnamon, allspice, apricot, and savory koji. The palate is sweet and fruity, a cup of Mott's applesauce with drizzled honey and sprinkles of cinnamon. It finishes with more sweet apples, vanilla, and caramel. Water not recommended.
