Kurayoshi Pure Malt Whisky 12 Year Old was aged for over 12 years in ex-bourbon white oak barrels. It is rich and fragrant with a nutty character and bold malt flavors. It is a well-balanced whisky with hints of vanilla, raisin and faint smoke. The light finish is a reminder of Tottori’s pure spring water used during distillation. Not chill-filtered.
Created in the shadow of Mt Daisen, at the Matsui Distillery, the whiskies benefit from the mountain’s crystal clear waters and over a century of expertise. The blenders here often combine malt whisky from Scotland with locally produced whisky. This is not an uncommon practice in Japan, and the exact breakdown typically remains undisclosed.
