Ohishi Whisky is distilled entirely from rice and aged in either Brandy or Sherry Casks. In order to ensure the quality of the spirit, the Master Distiller utilizes 30% estate grown grain for distillation, with the remaining 70% of rice (Mochi) coming from the surrounding Kumamoto prefecture. Weeds in the estate rice paddies are controlled, by the employment of koi fish to swim about the grass and nibble the invasive plants. Varieties of estate-grown rice include Hino hikari, Mori no kuma-san, Yamada Nishiki, Gohyaku Mangoku, and Gin no Sato. Because of the rice’s efficient and subsequent clean fermentation, Ohishi uses a pot still made from stainless steel, as opposed to copper.
Ohishi Tokubetsu Reserve is a very special release of almost equal parts 27-year-old (29%), 10-year-old (35%), and 7-year-old (36%) Ohishi Whisky Sherry Casks. The oldest whisky provides dark oak and complexity while the 7 and 10-year casks offer a youthfulness and zest, resulting in a harmonious final product. Bottled at 90 proof.
