Golden Horse Musashi Pure Malt Japanese Whisky

Musashi is the pure malt expression from the Golden Horse range, which was relaunched in 2016 alongside the Bushu blended whisky. Golden Horse whiskies are made by Toashuzo, a lesser-known but impressive Japanese producer whose whiskies rarely get released outside of Japan.

Nose: Ripe banana, a hint of oatcake, coffee bean and wet grass.

Palate: Soft notes of apple, pear and pineapple, with a core of earthy vanilla pod.

Finish: Chewy barley notes linger.
