Suntory 'Osumi' Essence 2020 Volume 4: Rice Whisky (500ml)

Suntory Essence 2020 Rice Whisky (500ml)

The Essence of Suntory Whisky - Volume 4

Rice Whisky

One of two bottles that make up the new Essence of Suntory Volume 4: Sakura and Rice release, this brilliant, groundbreaking expression is Suntory’s first ever rice whisky. It was produced at the widely acclaimed Osumi Sake Brewery, generally used for Sake and Shochu production. In stark contrast to many producers, they have not simply labelled shochu as whisky.  Instead, they have created a real, true rice whisky expression by using rice as the main ingredient, which was then saccharified with malt and fermented before being distilled. 

The unique process has created a clean, slightly spicy whisky that brings light notes of peaches, fruity incense, hints of ginger and a moreish juiciness. It’s a soft, gentle expression that has a lot to be explored and highlights the possibilities of using rice to create quality expressions of Japanese whisky.
