Born from one of the oldest distilleries in Southern Okinawa founded in the 1800s, this whisky is double-distilled in a traditional Japanese stainless steel pot still. After distillation, the whisky gets its beauty rest From Spanish Sherry Casks. This single grain is expertly crafted from special Indica Rice and indigenous black Koji. Lauren & Rachel Simmons, the sisters behind the recently launched IND Beverages, have joined forces with The Whiskey Dog CEO Nicholas M. Pollacchi to bring Japanese whisky to American consumers with the importing of the brand Shibui.
Shibui 15 Year Sherry Cask has an aroma of spiced fruits and creamy milk chocolate. The palate offers caramel covered fruits, whipped cream, and macadamia nuts. The finish is not as spicy, and lightly woody.
