Whisky, Fukano Distillery, 2019 Release

Fukano Distillery has been making spirits in Japan since 1823. Shigeruriku Fukano is the fifth generation of his family to run the distillery, located in Hitoyoshi City, Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan, a few towns away from Ohishi Distillery and, consequently, the Kuma River supplies the water for both distilleries. Fukano bottles a variety of rice-based whisky expressions that have a minerality and texture we have come to know and love.

Tasting Notes

The 2019 annual release of Fukano Whisky is a combination of first fill and refill American oak casks, along with a single wine cask that lends fruit to the finish. Limited to 2,117 bottles globally, aromas of lychee and powdered sugar transition to a creamy palate of candied, red apples and a finish of toasted oak and raw honey. 42.6% ABV.
