Kura The Whisky Bottling Note
The Helios distillery in Okinawa Japan may be more well-known for producing rums and awamori (a type of rice-based drink only produced in Okinawa), but they been known to dip their toe in the world of whisky. Kura The Whisky is a blended malt (or as the a label says, a "pure malt") produced by Helios and bottled at 40% ABV. Intriguing stuff...

Nose: Toasted oak and a touch of moss, creamy lemon and soft malt.
Palate: Brown sugar, burnt oak again (now with a touch of earthiness to it), lime marmalade.
Finish: Rye bread and a touch of bitter grape.
