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.’ This expression is aged exclusively in 1st fill, ex-bourbon barrels
Nose: Peaches in syrup, lemon peel, a faint trace of smoke.
Palate: Pronounced spice, more lemon peel, vanilla and toffee sweetness.
Finish: Brief but some green grape and icing sugar quietly show through.
