A sherried expression from the Kurayoshi range, created by little-known Japanese whisky producer Matsui Shuzou (also known for sake and shochu). These whiskies are blended malts, made with whiskies distilled in Scotland and shipped over to Japan, where they’re blended with Japanese whisky.
Aged in oak casks for over 3 years, and then finished in sherry casks. The nose expresses notes of ripe fruit and chocolate. The palate mimics the nose with additional hints of citrus and lemongrass. Sweetness and tartness balance each other elegantly. The light finish is a reminder of Tottori’s pure spring water used during distillation.
