Rabbit Hole Founder's Collection: Mizunara 15 Year Old Bourbon

Sale price$1,499.99

This is our rarest whiskey. The best of the best. Whiskey, weather, and wood have gracefully converged to create less than 2,200 bottles of this exceptional Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This double oak cask strength bourbon has mingled elegantly with hand-selected, slow growth Mizunara Oak for many seasons to reveal a whiskey like no other.

"For years, I’ve been fascinated by the terroir and traditions of fine whiskey making. When I finally got my hands on a handful of elusive casks from a small family-owned cooperage in Japan, I knew I wanted to create something special to honor the mystique and beauty of Hokkaido’s oak trees."

-Kaveh Zamanian
Founder & Whiskey Maker

For this Founder’s Collection edition, Founder and Hall of Fame Whiskey Maker, Kaveh Zamanian, an avid collector of rare bottles and barrels of whiskey, has selected a handful of 15-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey barrels from his personal trove and finished them in casks made of Japanese Mizunara Oak, the most elusive and coveted barrels on the planet, to create this one-of-a-kind double oaked cask strength bourbon.

Named after Japan’s indigenous wood, Mizunara is a unique type of white oak. Mizu translates to water, while nara means oak. This luxurious wood grows in the northernmost island of Japan. Mizunara Oak is more porous and delicate than European or American Oak which means only the most-skilled master coopers can make barrels fit for aging fine whiskey. It takes between 200 and 500 years for this elusive oak tree to reach maturity. Only then is it ready to become a barrel.

This exquisite limited edition bottle and box are works of art unto themselves. Each is individually numbered for authenticity. The bottle features an impressive heavy gold cork, while the gift carton is wrapped with our brand linen pattern begging to be held. Soft and luxurious, it features the signature of our founder proudly debossed on the side.

Tasting Notes:

Deep shades of mahogany with henna accents foreshadow the smooth, thick mouthful of this luxurious whiskey. Each sip greets you with a nose of nutmeg, all spice, walnut and leather balanced by notes of mint, honey, wood, and orange, before filling your palate with a sophisticated mix of earthy and confectionery flavors. Tobacco and oak linger as hints of custard, banana, and cinnamon give way to floral notes, then fade into dark cherry and a lingering chocolate finish. It is not merely a drink, it is the pinnacle of quality and craftsmanship. A true masterpiece.
