Onikishi Japanese Blended Whisky (700ml)
Japanese Blended Whisky
Onikishi blended Japanese Malt Whisky is produced in Takacho Town, Taka-gun, Hyogo Prefecture. Japanese water is known for its softness, making it the perfect water to produce smooth and delicate whisky.
The nose is woody, from white oak nuanced by hints of honey and myrtle floral scent touched by citrus. The palate has an immediate rush of honey and vanilla, then gives way to a more robust caramel that coats the mouth and makes way through the mid palate to a warmer cedar smoke. A refreshing kick of yuzu zest contrasts the opening sweetness to end.
Produced in batches, Onikishi is a flavourful whisky that is best enjoyed neat, over ice, or as a Highball Cocktail.
Onikishi derives its name from the Japanese words “Oni” meaning Demon and “Kishi” meaning Knight. Japan is a land known for his technological marvels yet its deeply rooted cultural heritage and behind this are centuries of mysticism and epic tales of lore. Onikishi is the demon knight bound to this whisky, imbuing it with its strength and vigour, its mystical charm and encapsulating the country’s deep traditions in its newest spirit, capturing the enduring essence of Japan.
Nose: Leathery dark notes open to a heathery character and sweet malty presence before subtle wood notes arise at the close.
Taste: A rich burst of malt and sweet cereals provide a creamy mouthfeel. Mid-palate, there’s a distinct nuttiness followed by a slight astringent citrus finish.
Finish: The lingering finish brings hints of dark molasses offset by subtle citrus peel.
