Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Kura The Whisky to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

Kura The Whisky Bottling Note

The Helios distillery in Okinawa Japan may be more well-known for producing rums and awamori (a type of rice-based drink only produced in Okinawa), but they been known to dip their toe in the world of whisky. Kura The Whisky is a blended malt (or as the a label says, a "pure malt") produced by Helios and bottled at 40% ABV. Intriguing stuff...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Toasted oak and a touch of moss, creamy lemon and soft malt.

Palate: Brown sugar, burnt oak again (now with a touch of earthiness to it), lime marmalade.

Finish: Rye bread and a touch of bitter grape.

Kura The Whisky Reviews

An ok Japanese drop, I've had better.

Drinkable, but has a sniff of paint/turps to it, a drop of water mellows this taint, but not blown away by the false advertising leading to my purchase.

Very good, smooth whiskey with a touch of sweetness I guess coming from rum barrel with a very pleasant smoke finish

Not impressed at all. Expecting more.

Beyond words......

Very accurate low end reviews on this site, I wish I had read them instead of making this benighted spontaneous purchase at Costco. Where do I start? The nose has a strong hint of antiseptic on a band-aid and might have singed a few nostril hairs. If arsenic wasn't tasteless, I imagine this is what it would taste like. The finish might have been tantamount to rusty razors blades. My co-tasters taste buds were also inconsolable. Since Costco does not except returns on alcohol, the next time I touch this bottle might be to disinfect my toilet.

I got a bottle of this from a friend who did not like Whisky and I have to say I truly enjoyed it very much even my wife who is very picky when it comes to any type of alcohol loved it. It does have a unique taste but very smooth and we enjoyed the smooth smokyafter taste of the whisky

Darn good

People given this a bad rating have no clue about peated whisky. It’s very good. Sharp clean with a little smoke.

Don’t fall for this marketing ploy

It taste like a young Scotch that was smoked over a dumpster fire. Vile. May be the fist bottle of booze that I ever pour down my sink.

The worst ever

This is by far the worst whiskey I have ever tasted. It tasted like burn wood and cough medicine rolled into one bottle.

Tastes like my new favourite!

Great whisky, absolutely loved the smooth sweetness, very easy drinking - I think I found my new everyday dram!

Tastes like Scotch stored in a barrel of asphalt!

I was looking forward to this whisky since I had heard good things about it. Bought a 750 ml bottle at Costco for $45 (US). Saw it for sale online for $129 -$169! Costco must be a good deal!

Couldn’t wait to try it! I was hugely disappointed! It’s described as tasting of sour grapes, earth, molasses...etc. It doesn’t taste like any of those things! It tastes like Scotch stored in a barrel of asphalt! It is frickin’ nasty! This is Scotch imported from Scotland to Okinawa, then stored in rum casks (how long?). I swear to God it tastes like Scotch poured over fresh asphalt! Don’t waste your money! Too many good whiskey’s on the market!

Nice and would buy again!

Found it very pleasant! Interesting idea to drink a whisky from Okinawa..
