Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Kura The Whisky to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

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...

Kura The Whisky Reviews

Japanese peat!

The low ratings are from folks who don’t like peat. As a lover of Islay scotch, this is my favorite Japanese whisky.

Imagine you’d spent a hundred quid on this

Easily in my top three worst whiskies of all time. Up there with Few single malt (liquid manure) and lakes “the one” olorosso (melted plastic). Tasted like a stagnant puddle. It was so bad it had me in genuine fits of laughter and just how awful it is.

Really bad

It was so bad....

Let down

Was excited to try this Whiskey. If you like the smell of paint thinner then this one if for you. Not a fan at all.

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.
