Japanese Whiskey Varieties

Today's hugely successful commercial market for Japanese whiskey, which shares many of the production methods and ingredients with Scots, owes much to Masataki Taketsuru's research. In 1918, this Japanese citizen traveled to Scotland with the intention of studying organic chemistry, but became interested in the production of Scotch whiskey. Similar to Scotch whiskey, Japanese whiskey also uses malted barley as a base for fermentation and aging in wooden barrels. However, the commonly used Mizunara oak, instead of French or American oak, gives Japanese whiskey its unique character of spices and citrus fruits. There are several whiskey companies in Japan, but the two most famous and widely available are Suntory and Nikka. Both produce blended and single malt whiskeys and blended malt whiskeys, with their main blended whiskeys being Suntory kakubin (? ?, square bottle) and Black Nikka Clear. There are also many special traffic jams and limited editions available.

About the Producer: Nikka Miyagikyo Distillery

Miyagikyo is a malt and grain whiskey distillery located on the Japanese island of Honshu, west of the city of Sendai. The location at the confluence of the Nikkawa and Hirose rivers was chosen for water quality by Masataka Taketsuru, co-founder of Nikka. Production began in 1969 and has expanded significantly since then. Whiskey is made mainly from unrefined barley, although there are also more intense peat varieties. All malt stills have large capacity with thick bottom, bottle and thick neck. There are also two coffee cubes built in Glasgow to produce corn alcohol, a mixture of corn malt and barley and a malt distillate used for the well-known Nikka Single Cask coffee malt. , with which a smoky and heavy single malt padded jacket is made. Together, the two whiskeys make up the Nikka blended whiskey.
