The Matsui Mizunara Cask Bottling Note:
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.
