Fuji Gotemba

Kirin Fuji Sanroku 50

Posted 02 June 2017

New Japanese whiskies are often either gone from the shelves before anyone has the chance to write about them, or they're being created (generally poorly in my opinion) by wine and shochu producers in an effort to jump on the Japanese whisky zeitgeist. Fuji Gotemba’s new bottling is neither of those things, being both available, and produced at one of Japan’s actual whisky distilleries. It’s also coming in at 50% ABV and is non-chill filtered. Exciting times.
