The Kurayoshi Pure Malt Whisky 8yo

Even the most ardent fans of Japanese whisky would be forgiven not to have heard of the Matsui distillery. Located in Tottori, a coastal prefecture on southern Honshu mostly known for its sand dunes. It is also the location of Matsui Breweries, which makes traditional Japanese sake and shochu, as well as whisky.  This 8yo expression brilliantly demonstrates the bright, lively and fresh qualities that can be enjoyed in younger whiskies.
