The whisk (e) consists of y-grain. (from maize to malt to barley) No wonder more distilleries are not trying to make more rice-based whiskey. Kikori's body is certainly lighter than other wheat whiskeys, but this manifests itself in different applications. Delicate aromas like flowers, herbs and aromas like lemongrass do not have to compete with more robust whiskeys in this great summer cocktail! Kikori is made in Kumamoto, Japan, but its founder Ann Soh Woods is in LA, hence the Visk e Visk in whiskey.Spelled with e-whiskey in Japan.) Matured for at least 3 years in American oak, French oak and sherry oak barrels. Although I recently had a great dinner with anglers, we enjoyed the special edition of 10-year-ancient Kikori! Matured only in sherry casks, the additional time bar in the barrel adds more vanilla and of course kind nutty notes. The characteristic puffed rice flavor of Kikori Whiskey remains a color and a light mind in the body.
Kikori is the great way to preserve the characteristics of a whiskey in Piña Colada and confuse all the bright tropical notes. I can not wait to make a round of them and sit by the pool all day (And I mean by the pool, it means that we buy a blown-out kids' pool! These days it's hot without air conditioning!)
It can be a small difficult to find in all liquor stores, but where can I buy Kikori? here,
