Kura The Whisky Rum Cask Finish
Kura Whisky is produced at the Helios distillery at Okinawa Island. Okinawa is a tropical island in the Pacific Ocean so it's no surprise Helios is most famous for it's rum and awamori (a rice based drink), which grows very well in it's warm, humid climate. However, Helios produces also some excellent whiskies which they finish in their own rum casks. Aging whiskies in such a climate goes very rapidly with a huge angel-share which gives the whisky a very complex and mature character for it's age.
