The Matsui Mizunara Cask Single Malt Whisky
From the Kurayoshi Distillery comes The Matsui Mizunara Cask, which unsuprisingly has been aged in rare Japanese Mizunara oak. The no age statement single malt was bottled at 48% ABV, after blending with water from Mt. Daisen. On the bottle you can see Katsushika Hokusai’s Thirty Six Views of Mount Fuji, featuring red-crowned cranes which are native to Japan.
Nose: A fresh, floral aroma followed by sweet vanilla and baking spice, with a touch of creamy coconut.
Palate: A velvety mouthfeel with rich oak, cinnamon, ginger and a touch of chilli spice, balanced by toffee sweetness.
Finish: Smooth and silky caramel lingers alongside floral oak, tobacco and vanilla pod.
