Kirin Fuji Gotemba Single Grain Whiskey (1x 700mL),Japan

$171
Wine Summary Image

Fuji is referred to as Whiskey – with e, which is how it is spelt in Ireland and the US. However, Japanese whisky typically follows the Scotch tradition, so whisky is almost always written here without an e. This tells us something about the liquid and its production methods.

It’s a blend of three types of grain whiskey. The backbone of the blend is a Canadian-style medium-type grain with a rich flavour, made with a batch distillation similar to a malt pot still called a kettle distiller. It takes more time than continuous distillation, but it produces a fruity distillate with a soft mouthfeel. The only kettle distiller outside the US is at Mt Fuji Distillery.

This backbone is supported by a Bourbon-style heavy-type grain distillate using a Doubler. The only Doubler outside the US is at Mt Fuji Distillery.

The third is a Scotch-style light-type grain with a gentle flavour using a continuous distillation machine multi-column. This enhances the characters of the other components and adds to the harmony and depth.

Japan

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour:

Auburn, tawny with a hint of orange.

Nose:

Very inviting nose. Apple, banana, pears, baked fruits, cinnamon, liquorice. Bold and confident but not overpowering, somewhere between Rye and Brandy.

Palate:

Soft mouthfeel. Orange, sweet, subtle spices, cinnamon, rye bread, bitter chocolate. There’s this estery, ripe fruit note, which I get with a number of the distilleries whiskies. They attribute it to two factors – the 180-litre barrels they use, akin to the bourbon industry, to increase the contact area of the distillate with the wood. Inefficient and costly in space, but they believe it is worth it. The second is their proprietary yeasts.

Finish:

Medium. It starts sweet and then moves towards woodiness, incense and finally a homely rye bread feeling.
