Even the fans most ardent of japanese whiskey would be forgiven for not having heard of the distillery Matsui. Located in Tottori, a prefecture coast in the south of Honshu known mainly for its sand dunes. It is also the location of Matsui Breweries, which produces sake and shochu, traditional japanese, as well as whiskey. This bottle, the Kurayoshi Pure Malt 18 Year Old is the best thing that this distillery has produced from now on. Launched in April of 2016, has drawn attention in Japan, since the manufacturers of ji-whisky tend to be much more modest in terms of the aging Matsui.
Smell of malt, cereal and puffed bread, a little lemon peel, a touch of dry grass and bitterness.
Taste honey, lemon, caramel flavor, and malt flavor. Then comes with the spices and flavor of dry straw.
A small amount of sweetness that makes the reminiscent of the sense of wheat sits, the vanilla reminds the cream, lightly smoked.
