Even the most ardent fans of Japanese whisky would be forgiven for not having heard of the Matsui distillery. Located in Tottori, a coastal prefecture on southern Honshu mostly known for its sand dunes. It is also the location of Matsui Breweries, which makes traditional Japanese sake and shochu, as well as whisky. This bottle, the Kurayoshi Pure Malt 15 Year Old is one of the finest and rarest things this distillery has produced.
Kurayoshi 15 Year Old Malt Whisky is aged in white oak ex-bourbon barrels and has abundent vanilla with warm toffee notes offering a rich and mighty, yet elegant expression. Carefully selected long-term aged whisky, exquisitely mellowed with natural spring water from Mt. Daisen. -Importer's Notes
