The Kurayoshi Pure Malt Whisky 12 Year Old
Aroma: Flamed orange peel and lemongrass, with a touch of rye bread dough
Palate: Aromatic barley with a floral edge, develops a fruity core of apple and white grape soon after
Conclusion: Lime, ginger and a whiff of smoke
Editor Choice: The aroma of nuts and almonds is followed by a rich malty texture, with hints of vanilla and raisins, accompanied by a faint smoky flavor in perfect balance with the sweetness, bitterness and acidity of this vintage.
These whiskies are made with malts sources from Scotland, then blended with Japanese whisky and volcanic-rock-filtered water.
