The Kurayoshi 12 Year Old Pure Malt Japanese Whisky 750ml
Situated in the Tottori Prefecture, northwest of the city of Kyoto on the shores of the Japan sea, Matsui Shuzou was founded in 1910. A coastal prefecture in southern Honshu known for its sand dunes, the Tottori prefecture is a wilderness packed with lush vegetation, rugged coastlines, rivers and lakes, characterized by its delicious, fresh ground water. Kurayoshi whiskies have signature mellow characteristics and an overall smooth flavor profile. A whisky that truly embodies the meaning of the name Kurayoshi: the city of water and green. Tottori is also very well-known for its soft mineral water and abundance of nature. Over 14% of the total land area of the prefecture is designated as a Natural Park. Matsui Shuzo is both a sake brewery and shochu distillery. Kurayoshi is a 100% malted barley whisky, sourced from distilleries around Scotland, before making their way to Japan, where it is blended with Japanese whisky, aged, and cut to proof with the soft ground waters of Tottori Prefecture. Kurayoshi 12 Year Old Malt Whisky has rich fragrant aromas, with notes of almonds and malt. 12 years of maturation is reflected in every mouth-coating sip. Vanilla and dried fruit are abundant on the palate with faint hint of smokiness. This whisky is an exceptional balance of tart and sweet, ending with a soft and smooth finish.

Nose: macallan-esq sherry apricot nose with caramel and pepper Body: medium Sense of taste: malt vanilla Completion: medium Note: this one is alright insufficient body. I surmise I dont see what the whine is about with these Japanese malts. They appear to crash and burn for me. Furthermore again more rice.

Nose: cherry and oak but instead smooth/level. Flavor: first solid liquor hit at that point some better notes Finish: nearly wood finish like persistent flavor. ...not so much for me.
