Since 1910 Matsui Shuzo Distillery has been facing the Sea of Japan in Tottori Prefecture within sight of Mount Daisen, an ancient extinct volcano. 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.
