Do you know that there are many various types of whisky in the world and how they are made?
Whisky is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash and there are many places producing whisky in the world!
The one that I will introducing is the best 5 whisky made in Japan!
Hibiki 21 years
Hibiki is one of the famous whisky brands in Japan, which is a premium blended whisky produced by Suntory Beam. This product itself has won several awards.
So what is it that makes it so popular not only to the Japanese, but also to foreigners?
More than over 30 whiskies were used in the mix, and with a bamboo charcoal filtering step used, it gives off a very sweet and gentle flavor!
Currently, there are 3 variations, mainly the Hibiki 17, Hibiki 21 and Hibiki Japanese Harmony.
Hence if you’re looking for something gentle and sweet, this could be the perfect choice for you.
Another famous whisky brand is the Nikka whisky, and this brand is very prominent, especially in Hokkaido because you will definitely be able to spot the logo in Sapporo.
Nikka whisky was founded in 1934 in Hokkaido, and one of their well-known product is the Black Nikka, which is said to have a floral, fruity and a little bit of spice, with notes of citrus/orange peel, apricot, vanilla extract, caramel and the scent of wood. It tastes smooth, and also sweet like caramel and toffee.
So if you’re someone who likes it sweet, then this is the choice for you.
Another famous whisky brand from Suntory! Yamazaki is very much well known not only to the Japanese, but also in the world! You can find this whisky is almost every airport’s duty free if you pay some attention to it.
One the best seller has to be the 12 year Yamazaki because not only of its affordable price, the taste has a pleasant floral and tropical fruit to it, and is definitely smooth to the throat.
If you’re looking for something within budget and sweet, then this is for you!
Hakushu Reserve 18
Hakushu Reserve is a fantastic 18 year old whisky with real quality which smells like orange and pear with a dry smokiness. Even so, it tastes like sweets or maybe even like baked pastries.
The Chita is a single grain whisky, a whisky matured in a combination of Sherry, bourbon and wine casks. This whisky is said to be good to be drink during the summer.
It smells like honeydew melon, with a tinge of citrus in it, and tastes like vanilla sponge cake with some honey!
So if you’re looking for something sweet like a dessert, then this would be a perfect choice for you!
After introducing the best 5 whisky (not in preference), I hope that this piece of information has been insightful for you!
And on a side note, if you’re wondering if whisky would make you gain weight, fret not, because there are studies showing that whisky won’t make you gain weight as much as drinking beer! So start your whisky time!
