Kurayoshi 18yo 700ml
Even the most ardent fans of the Japanese whiskey would be forgiven for not having heard of the Matsui distillery. Located in Tottori, coastal prefecture in southern Honshu known for its sand dunes. It is also the location of Matsui Breweries, which makes traditional Japanese sake and shochu and whiskey.
This bottle, Kurayoshi Pure Malt 18 Year Old is the best this distillery has produced from now. Launched in April 2016, it has drawn attention in Japan, as manufacturers chi-whiskey tend to be much more modest in regard to aging that Matsui.
