Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Glistening in a deep, mahogany hue, the whisky's color speaks to its luscious sojourn in the sherry casks. The darker shade exudes a sense of gravitas and promises a complex journey of flavors and aromas.
The olfactory profile is opulent and intensely aromatic. It offers a layered complexity of dried fruits—most notably figs and raisins—complemented by undertones of nutmeg, cloves, and caramelized oranges. A delicate veil of oaken spice adds depth and sophistication.
On the palate, the whisky is decadent and richly textured. The sherry cask influence manifests itself profoundly, with succulent flavors of dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and ripe cherries making their appearance. These are well-integrated with spiced elements of cinnamon and a faint touch of leather, adding layers to its intricate composition.
The finish is elongated and luxurious, leaving an endearing impression of spicy oak and a subtle resurgence of sherry sweetness. A whisper of tobacco and dark chocolate lingers, closing the experience in a nuanced, multifaceted manner.
Full-bodied with an oily, almost velvety texture, the Kurayoshi Sherry Cask envelopes your palate with its opulence, encouraging a leisurely savoring of each drop.
