Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
The liquid presents itself with a deep, russet hue, akin to a well-aged leather armchair, signaling the weighty experiences it contains within.

Nose (Aroma):
The olfactory profile of Kurayoshi 18 Year is a lavish expedition through aromas. Layered complexities of dark chocolate, aged tobacco, and exotic spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon tantalize the nose, while undertones of dried fruits like figs and raisins add further dimensions.

Palate (Taste):
Upon first sip, you're greeted by a dense, full-bodied tapestry of flavors. There's a pronounced presence of oak, balanced by flavors of caramelized sugar and toffee. Notes of dark fruit - think plums and black cherries - round out the palate, complemented by delicate hints of Japanese umami that provide an earthy, savory counterpoint.

The finish is incredibly long-lasting and evolves in stages. Initial nuances of caramel and oak give way to a gentle smokiness, ending in a lingering warmth that continues to unfold, leaving an aftertaste of aged leather and exotic wood.

As one would expect from an 18-year-old single malt of this caliber, the mouthfeel is lush and oily, allowing the complex flavor profile to envelop the palate completely.
