The Kurayoshi Pure Malt Bottling Note
A blended malt from little-known Japanese whisky producer, Matsui Shuzou. It's made with whiskies sourced from Scottish distilleries, blended with Japanese whisky and volcanic-stone-filtered water. The distillery is located in the Tottori Prefecture, the least populous prefecture in Japan, well-known for its sand dunes.
