Released in April 2016, the Kurayoshi Pure Malt 18 Years Old Whisky is a boutique Japanese whisky produced by the Matsui distillery. Located in Tottori, a coastal prefecture on southern Honshu, the whiskies produced by the Matsui distillery are characterised by aging with the pure underground waters of Daisen Mountains.
Bottled at 50% the Kurayoshi Pure Malt 18 Years Old Whisky is Scottish in style, with a complex and deep flavour. Sweet and spicy with malt overtones and an elegant finish of smoke.
Due to the boutique size of Matsui distillery there are limited stockists of Kurayoshi whisky outside of Japan. The Japanese Quality Whisky Society is proud to offer the largest allocation of this unique whisky available in Australia. Our supply of this line also allows us to offer the lowest price for you to buy the Kurayoshi 18 Year Old Pure Malt Whisky online.
Complex and depth in taste by allowing it to mature for more than 18 years. Deep flavor in the short term aging followed by a lingering rich aroma. A good and well-balanced pure malt whiskey with a mellow taste. Enjoy a cup of bliss.
NOSE: Malt flavor of puffed cereal and bread, a little of lemon peel, hint of dried grass and acridity.
PALATE: Honey, lemon, candy taste, and malty flavor. Then coming with spices and dried straw flavor.
