Even the most ardent fans of Japanese whisky would be forgiven not to have heard of the Matsui distillery. Located in Tottori, a coastal prefecture on southern Honshu mostly known for its sand dunes. Matsui Shuzo is historically known in Japan as both a sake brewery and shochu distillery. While the juice in Kurayoshi is 100% malted barley, the spirits themselves have been sourced from distilleries around Scotland before making their journey to Japan, where they are blended with Japanese-distilled malted barley, then aged. The whisky is then proofed down with the famously soft ground waters of Tottori Prefecture. All expressions of Kurayoshi are non-chill filtered, with no caramel added.
Nose: Sweet oak and honey, with a hint of earthy peat.
Palate: Sherried malt comes through first with hints of smoke and notes of raisin and cinnamon, shortly followed by toasted nuts and vanilla pod.
Finish: Touches of fresh fruit sharpness and floral barley.
