Kujira Ryukyu 20 Years Old is a rather interesting, two decades old rice whisky from Okinawa that aged in ex-bourbon barrels and recently arrived in the States through import channels.

Last year, I tasted the Kujira 20 year that’s mentioned above and thought it was a winner. I remember being excited about the future of Okinawan whisky. However, I was a bit disappointed to learn that the product was intended for export only. It was not normally available domestically.

This year, I jumped at the opportunity to reserve a bottle of Kujira 24 year when I learned that it would become available locally and was due to drop soon. Today was the day that I received my limited edition bottle, one of 500!
