Kiwami means “height” in Japanese, and the intention of this bottling is to represent some of the distillery’s best blending efforts using both Scotch whiskies and locally produced whiskies. The exact composition is not disclosed.
Togouchi is a blended Japanese whisky from the producers Chugoku Jozo, who mature their whisky in a tunnel rather than a warehouse. The name comes from where the tunnel is located, in the town of Togouchi, which merged with two other towns to create a larger town called Akiota. This is their no-age-statement expression, the Togouchi Premium Blended Japanese Whisky.
A recent Togouchi limited edition reserved exclusively for the French and marketed by Les Whiskies du Monde. The company has been distributing whiskies from smaller Japanese producers (Akashi/Eigashima and Isawa, among others) for several years now.
