This well-aged Straight Rye Whiskey was created using koji fermentation. Each bottle is adorned with The Samurai Scientist – Jōkichi Takamine – who pioneered koji fermentation in the American whisky industry over a century ago.

Each bottle barrel is bottled at strength, between 120 – 122 proof.

  • Nose: Intensely aromatic, with cinnamon, maple, and toasted marshmallow that develops with time in the glass.
  • Palate: Tobacco, ginger, baking spices, and savory umami creating a remarkably rich, nuanced and elegant profile lending to soft, sweet notes that further color the mosaic of flavor.
  • Finish: Incredibly long, with oak spice, char, and just a touch of smoke lingers as the finish fades.
