Kurayoshi Duo

This bundle includes the ff.:

1x Kurayoshi 12YO
1x Kurayoshi 18YO

 

Kurayoshi 12YO

DESCRIPTION:

This is the 12 year old Kurayoshi expression - a blended malt from the little-known Matsui Shuzou distillery in Japan's Tottori Prefecture. These whiskies are made with malts sources from Scotland, then blended with Japanese whisky and volcanic-rock-filtered water.

TASTING NOTES:

Nose: Flamed orange peel and lemongrass, with a touch of rye bread dough.

Palate: Aromatic barley with a floral edge, develops a fruity core of apple and white grape soon after.

Finish: Lime, ginger and a whiff of smoke.

Kurayoshi 18YO

AWARDS: 
Best Japanese Whisky, 2021 - San Francisco World Spirits Competition  

DESCRIPTION
:

18 year old blended malt from the Kurayoshi range, created by the Matsui Shuzou distillery. Though not very well-known, ReeMatsui Shuzou have created some rather marvellous expression for this series, made using malt whiskies from Scotland, transported over to Japan, blended with Japanese malt whiskies and brought down to bottling strength with volcanic-rock-filtered water.

TASTING NOTES:

Nose: Slightly grassy at first, before layers of buttered bread and aromatic oak develop.

Palate: Fresh orange, black tea smokiness, a pinch of cumin powder, brown sugar.

Finish: Vanilla-forward, with another hint of smoke lingering.
