"The Cookie"


Ohishi "Ancona's Edition" Single Barrel Sherry Cask 

"The Cookie"

 So here's the story. We've been working on this project for almost two years now. We've always sold and loved the whisky offerings from Ohishi, so when we were offered the opportunity to tatse through five single barrel samples to pick our very own cask, we jumped at the chance.  As usual, you can skip the heavy reading and click HERE for LIB Season 1, "Special Edition" to find out why we love this (our) whisky.

(note: the video is a little long but extrememly informative)

The Facts-

  • Ohishi Distillery was founded in 1872 and is located in the Southwest of Japan. (single malt production in Japan started in 1923)
  • Ohishi is the closest distillery to the source of the Kuma River, renowned and prized for its superior water quality. 
  • Ohishi has been a family business for five generations.
  • 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 (rice) 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.  
  • Because of the rice’s efficient and subsequent clean fermentation, Ohishi uses a pot still made from stainless steel, as opposed to copper.

Kyle's tasting notes:

Mitch's tasting notes: "It's all about the nose... as stated in both videos (and hinted at in the name "The Cookie") wonderfully warm aromas that are reminisent of "shortbread butter cookies"... underlying supportive notes of sherry and oak spice. Rich mouthfeel that isn't too heavy. Complex flavors that follow the nose nicely. This spirit is super soft... one might say intricately delicate... finish lingers nicely."
