Product Characteristics
Fuji Single Grain Whiskey is a blend of three different grain whiskeys produced at Mt. Fuji Distillery. Those different grain whiskies are distilled in three different methods and possess their own unique flavor profiles: Bourbon type ; heavier, rich, floral fruity style, Canadian type; medium, luscious, and delicately fruity style, and Scotch type; lighter, soft, yet compelling. This Fuji Single Grain whiskey features the quintessential characteristics of each of the three types of grain whiskeys: delicately fruity, mellow and with a multi-layered profile.

* The International Spirits Challenge (ISC) is an annual liquor competition organized by Drinks International, a British publication specializing in spirits, wines, and beers. Spirits categories other than Whisky include Brandy, Tequila, Gin, and Vodka. Trophy, Double Gold, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and other medals are awarded for each category. In the Whisky category, the judges are master blenders and distillers from the world's leading whisky producers. Since the product entries are judged via strict blind-tasting, ISC medals are considered one of the most authoritative awards.
