Consumers seeking a much more subtle introduction to liquor might enjoy the light whiskey varieties brewed by Kikori Japanese. The blend is made using rice that gives the spirit a much more airy and sweeter flavor that is much less aggressive in taste than other whiskey blends. The beverage offers a much more approachable introduction into whiskey.

The Kikori Japanese Whiskey is produced using local rice mashbills that give the blend a lighter color and flavor profile. The blend is brewed inside steal steamers and aged for up to three years in speciality barrels to enhance the aroma. This includes oak and sherry casks to give a sweeter element to the spirit.

Due to the use of rice mashbills to create the beverage, the whiskey has a high count of 82-proof.
