Kirin has an online, interactive discover whisky selector allows you to choose the right whisky for your taste or for the right occasion. You choose from Kirin brands of course, but it is interesting. You can click on whether you like mild or dry, you can choose what type of food you will be eating it with or you can choose by category (meaning Japanese, Scotch, Irish, American or Canadian). This photo is the best non-interactive representation and shows a few of the many whisky brands that go through Kirin in Japan on a chart from mild (left) to dry (right).
