Kirin 50 ° is a blended whisky produced at the Fuji Gotemba distillery built by Kirin in 1973 at the foot of Mount Fuji. Despite its high alcohol volume of 50%, this whisky is soft and easy to drink and can be enjoyed as an aperitif served highball or as a digestive. Exclusively composed of whiskies aged in american oak barrels, the Kirin 50° will not fail to seduce you with its aromas of corn and vanilla so popular to Bourbon whisky enthusiasts.
This attractive blend expresses a perfect balance through its unique mixture of half grain whisky and half single malt. Its round texture is enhanced by the richness of its aromatic bouquet with some of the complexity come from a 20 year old single malt which represents nearly 10% of the malt whisky used in the final blend.
