The name Kurayoshi originates from the phrase “kurashiyoshi” which translates to “good living” in English and is also the name of the city in which the distillery is located. Kurayoshi whiskies are a testament to the historic Japanese tradition of blending and aging sourced whiskies and are distinctly Japanese in profile.
This 100% malt whisky is blended and aged at least 3 years in ex-bourbon barrels by Kurayoshi Distillery. Proofed with the famously soft ground waters of Tottori Prefecture’s Mount Daisen and bottled without additives or coloring, this is a fantastic introduction to the Japanese whisky flavor profile. The texture is soft, and the nose fragrant. The flavor is reminiscent of nuts and dried figs, with a subtle kiss of vanilla.
