Review by The Kurayoshi

Colour

Amber

Nose

Lemon grass, new potted malt and baked bread flavors.

Palate

Watery mouthfeel followed by good heat

Finish

Lingering bitter-sweet finish

Note

The Kurayoshi pure malt whisky sherry cask: Aged in sherry casks for over 3 years. The nose expresses notes of ripe fruit and chocolate. The palate mimics the nose with additional hints of citrus and lemongrass. Sweetness and tartness balance each other elegantly. The light finish is a reminder of Tottoris pure spring water used during distillation.
