Pure Malt 18YO

50% ABV


Founded in 1956 in Kyoto, Matsui Brewing Co. is a sake brewer and boutique blender and bottler of whisky.

The Kurayoshi brand was released in April 2016 and gained widespread adulation for its remarkable palate and unique blending methods.

The Kurayoshi 18 Year Old is a superb Japanese whisky.

Bottled at 50% ABV, the 18 Year Old Pure Malt is a vatting of Scotch and Japanese malt cut with volcanic ash filtered water from the Daisen Mountains in Kurayoshi, Tottori, Japan, and then aged for a further year in these mountains.


Tasting Notes:

Nose: some wax and some white fruits, with a very Speyside-y development, all on vanilla and orchard fruits, with a touch of mint in the background.

Mouth (neat): fruit syrup, malt, a little white chocolate, a pinch of cumin powder, brown sugar, some preserved peaches, some crystallised oranges. This is solid. 

Finish: medium, fruity, with notes of hop and IPA.
