TASTING NOTES – THE KURAYOSHI 18 YEARS OLD

Nose

Scents of cocoa and ripe fruits are followed by honey and delicate hints of balsamic herbs. Then caramel. Lastly, notes of hazelnut are revealed.

Palate

Warm and round. It delivers aromas of cocoa, leather and hazelnut. There is also a touch of white pepper on a vegetal base.

Finish

Medium-long persistence. A mix of spices, wood and cocoa.

The Kurayoshi 18 years old is a complex and structured Japanese whiskey. It is intense and satisfying, equipped with a broad flavor profile. This whiskey was awarded as the 8th best whisky in 2019 awards.

Rating: 90
