Pure Malt Whisky, 'Kurayoshi,' Matsui Whisky
Founded in 1910 as a producer of sake and shochu, Matsui and its Kurayoshi Distillery are located in Tottori Prefecture, northwest of Kyoto and northeast of Hiroshima on the shore of the Sea of Japan. Matsui has proven itself to be masterful in blending and aging whisky with both its Kurayoshi and Tottori collections, and is now stepping confidently into the world of whisky distillation with it’s single malt collection entitled, ‘The Matsui.’

While the juice in Kurayoshi is 100% malted barley, the spirits themselves are sourced from distilleries around Scotland and Japan before being blended and aged (3–18 years), after which the whisky is proofed down with the famously soft ground waters of Tottori Prefecture. This pure malt whisky has been aged for more than 3 years in ex-bourbon casks. The texture is soft, and the nose fragrant. The flavor is reminiscent of nuts and dried figs, with a subtle kiss of vanilla. 46% ABV.
