Introduction and Dynamics:
Japanese whisky is a style of whisky developed and produced in Japan, and though production began around 1870, whisky was first commercially available in 1924, with the opening of the country's first distillery, Yamazaki. Similar to Scotch, Japanese whisky is aged in wooden kegs, sometimes in Japanese Mizunara oak, other oak as well as in Sherry casks, and this imparts unique characteristics in terms of taste and flavor. Japanese whiskies come in single and double malts. Japanese whisky flavors and taste is not harsh, as compared to other whiskies, and have been gaining popularity in the recent past in countries across the globe.
