KAMIKI AND UMIKI WHISKY WON MULTIPLE HIGH RATINGS AND A “LIQUID AWARD” AT LATEST “WHISKY BIBLE 2021” BY JIM MURRAY.

Osaka, JAPAN, 17th September 2020 – Honest, forthright and proudly independent, Jim Murray has, for this 17th and 18th edition, tasted and rated Kamiki Whisky Variants at his most comprehensive and thoroughly researched guide – Whisky Bible 2020 and 2021.

KAMIKI SAKURA WOOD WHISKY
WORLD’S FIRST WHISKY FINISHED IN JAPANESE SAKURA CASKS

“…first getting tighter with the cedar and then relaxing with the sweeter butterscotch tart; settles down with an attractive lushness for a short while… but then the tannins get serious……I am really beginning to get a taste for this unique stuff….”

JIM MURRAY

KAMIKI BLENDED MALT WHISKY
WORLD’S FIRST WHISKY FINISHED IN JAPANESE CEDAR CASKS

“….….even more cedary than their last bottling: wow much more barley prevalent, allowing a healthy gristiness to flourish before unique tannin fingerprint start to make its mark…such a different whisky. And it appears every batch has its own twist and take on matters. Fascinating…and delicious!”

JIM MURRAY

KAMIKI INTENSE WOOD WHISKY
WORLD’S FIRST WHISKY FINISHED IN JAPANESE CEDAR CASKS

“…. another new experience for me after 30 years of doing this job. I have, in the past, had oak casks which have offered a cedar aroma…but never cedar itself! A sedate whisky but with a definite twist…”

JIM MURRAY

UMIKI BLENDED WHISKY
WORLD’S FIRST OCEAN FUSED WHISKY FINISHED IN JAPANESE PINE BARRELS

Umiki Ocean Fused Whisky finished in pine barrels, …truly a one off. Really scratching my head working out how to describe this. … What is clear from the glass – and that is where it matters, not the label – is that there is something markedly different about this whisky, offering a signature incomparable to other brands. An oddball, maybe…. But one of the most fascinating whiskies I have tasted this year.
