our tasting notes

Nose

Toasted oak and a touch of moss, creamy lemon and soft malt.

Taste

Brown sugar, burnt oak again (now with a touch of earthiness to it), lime marmalade.

Finish

Rye bread and a touch of bitter grape.

about

Limited to 2,000 bottles worldwide, the Kura The Malt is a completely different expressions of Japanese Whisky. The smokiness of the rum finish is unique and adds a different type of sweetness than you find in sherry aged whiskies. This little number distilled by the Helios Distillery in Okinawa is sure to delight fans of Hakushu and Yamazaki.

Factor in the price and just about anyone will be elated! Helios Distillery is been known for producing rums and awamori for many decades. Their flagship whisky is one of the most unique and enticing Japanese whiskies we've ever come across. They begin with peat sourced from the mires of Hokkaido.

The Japanese peat has a lot of the same characteristics as Scottish peat, but availability is extremely limited. One of the easiest drinking peated whiskies we've ever featured that's approachable yet brimming with character and finesse.
