Since 1910, the Matsui Shuzo Distillery has been facing the Sea of Japan in the Tottori Prefecture. Despite the low mediatic profile, Matsui has a line of ten different malts. This 18yo is the most aged one in the range. It’s a blend of local whiskies with imported Scotch single malts cut to 100 proof with the pure volcanic filtered water of the surroundings.
Scents of ripe fruit, cocoa and caramel are enriched with vegetal and honey notes. To the palate it confirms the cocoa, supported by peppery notes. Medium-long finish, with cocoa, wood and spices.
