Ryujin Dragon Japanese Whisky
Ryujin Mizunara Cask Japanese Whisky is a rare find, made with the finest grain and aged 12 months. These unique casks impart a lightly smoky, sweet flavor that is both bold and delicate.
Pairing perfectly with a premium cigar, this Japanese whisky is aged 12 months in Mizunara casks, a native Japanese oak from Hokkaido. This tree must grow to be at least 200 years old before it can be harvested for use in a cask barrel.
The Japanese dragon is a symbol of power, strength, and authority believed to bring luck. Ryūjin, the deity of the sea in Japanese myths, is one of the most important of all Japanese dragons. He represents the power of the ocean and was a patron of Japan. Considering that the sea and seafood are important for Japanese livelihood, Ryūjin plays a significant role in Japanese culture and history, and is believed to be one of the forefathers of the Japanese imperial dynasty. Recognizing the most significant dragon in Japanese culture gave rise to the bold and vibrant flavors of Ryūjin Whisky.
Fruity and floral notes throughout the taste, with honey, orange peel, and white chocolate flavors. Mellow finish with a hint of oak.
