A peated whisky from the Kurayoshi Distillery, released as part of The Matsui series and dubbed The Peated! It’s pot distilled and then matured in white oak bourbon casks, before bottling at 48% ABV. The bottle is adorned with Katsushika Hokusai’s famed piece, The Great Wave, chosen to represent the spirit and force of the whisky within.
A great care was given during the selection of malted Barley which was then peated. The master distiller believes that the quality of grain has a strong impact on distillation, aging and the complexity of the final product. Aged in American oak in the Tottori prefecture in a natural environment very favorable to a good aging. It is then diluted down with high quality natural spring water from Mont Daisen.
‘The Peated’ expresses sweetness and fruitiness with a smoky finish. A masterpiece made with care and passion!
