Kaiyo The Single Japanese Mizunara Oak Whisky
This exquisite 7 year old malt whisky spent 6 months
aging at sea in Japanese Mizunara oak.
Kaiyo is a Japanese Mizunara oak aged whisky. What makes
this spirit so special is the bespoke oak barrel selection. Mizunara oak is
some of the most expensive wood available. The impeccable character of the wood
imparts distinctive notes onto every spirit. However, its delicate wood grain
nature makes it quite challenging to cooper.
Kaiyo whisky is aged in handmade, bespoke Mizunara oak casks. These barrels are
crafted from slow growth, air-seasoned wood from hand-selected trees. After the
whisky is aged, it is finished at sea, imparting even more distinctive
character to the spirit. This unique sea voyage departs from Osaka Japan, and
the journey can take up to 3 months.
This whisky gets its exquisite character first and foremost from the Mizunara
oak. This is a 7 year old malt whisky, made on a coffey still in Japan, and
aged in bourbon barrels before spending 6 months aging on the ocean in
Japanese Mizunara oak.
