About the Whisky:
A single malt whisky made from carefully-chosen peated malt, distilled in the natural environment of Tottori and aged in selected casks.

This whisky evokes a mellow, fruity sweetness, with a smoky, peaty finish. This masterpiece, carefully crafted with heart and passion, is cut to proof with high-quality natural spring water from Mt. Daisen.

Katsushika Hokusai’s “The great wave”
Packing a potent peat punch, this bottling leaves a hale and hearty aftertaste, even among Matsui whiskies. We feel the force and majesty of the waves in this Ukiyo-e artwork reflects the spirit of our peated offering, hence why we chose it for our label. Aesthetically pleasing and delicious, this Matsui whisky is a work of pride.

Alcohol content: 48% Types of barrels: White oak

No artificial coloring is added.

90 Points & #19 Top 20 Whiskies of 2019 - Whisky Advocate:
"Kurayoshi Distillery lies between Osaka and Hiroshima in the foothills of Mount Daisen, where it produces single malt whiskies brought to proof with soft, mountain spring water. The label, adorned by Hokusai’s The Great Wave, portends this whisky’s rush of flavor: satisfyingly smoky, with noticeable structure and complexity. Kippers on the nose, with burnt aromatic grasses, cocoa, and jellied fruits, and a smoky palate of red apple, ginger, pepper, orange, and mango. Smoke writhes like a serpent on the finish, sliding off the walls dripping with sweet tropical fruits." —Jonny McCormick
