our tasting notes

Nose

Fresh and full of citrus fruits with plenty of oak spices and hints of vanilla.

Taste

Spicy and smooth. A little water brings out masses of citrus fruits, oranges, lemons, and limes as well as an underlying salted caramel sweetness that sets everything off perfectly.

Finish

Fades fast but with plenty of sweetness. Moorish.

about

The demand for Japanese whisky has exploded over the past decade as first the Highball cocktail landed and then the global whisky market as a whole began to flourish. 

This led to plenty of new entrants into the market including sake distiller Kiyokawa. They have specialised in blended whisky and their Kensei Japanese Whisky brand has been among their most successful.

The name Kensei is taken from the title traditionally given to exceptional warriors. It is therefore fitting that this whisky certainly packs a punch. It has been blended from a selection of Japanese whiskies all of which have been aged for at least four years in small oak barrels. 

The youth comes across in its rather sharp and spicy taste meaning that a little water is advisable to take the edge off. With water, you get to enjoy a fruity and balanced whisky with a long sweet finish.
