Matsui Shuzo ‘The Tottori’ Bourbon Barrel Blended Japanese Whisky – 750 ML

$59.99

A blended whisky born from the pursuit of balance, finished brilliantly with the spring water of Mount Daisen. You can cleanly savor the natural fragrance of the bourbon barrel.

Founded in 1910, Matsui Shuzo is located in the Tottori Prefecture, Northwest of Kyoto and Northeast of Hiroshima, on the shore of the Sea of Japan. Matsui Shuzo is known in Japan as both a sake brewery and shochu distillery. While the juice in Kurayoshi is 100% malted barley, the spirits themselves have been sourced from distilleries around Scotland before making their journey to Japan, where they are blended with Japanese-distilled malted barley then aged (3-18 years). The whisky is then proofed down with the famously soft ground waters of Tottori Prefecture.

Nose: Oak dominates with notes of spice and sharp fruit and a touch of vanilla to round it out. Mouth: Vanilla is more prominent in the flavor, but oak still dominates everything. Lacks depth and complexity, though it’s decent enough. A bit harsh in the finish. Not one I’m interested in drinking again.
