Matsui Kurayoshi 12 | Vegan Chocolate Nibs

KURAYOSHI 12 | VEGAN CHOCOLATE NIBS

Oddities & commodities… potentially a dead on catch phrase to encompass the current culture of whisky, #Japanese whisky in particular.  With such feverish demand for an astringent supply of this worldly malt, insert marketing and chemical experimentation to create another name on the player track of single malts and blends.  Regardless if you are a traditionalist, purist and/or inWHISKtigator, this part mystery sourced liquid hailing from the coastal and mountainous terrain of #Tottori, #Japan is not hear to fool you but rather provide another tasty hue to the whisky wheel.

Primarily known as a #sake and #shochu brewhouse, #MatsuiShuzo distillery prides themselves on blending beautifully!  A marriage of variably sourced #scotch and local malt combines before being proofed down with the areas own local purities to produce a dram fit for any occasion. In this case, the 12YO #Kurayoshi showcases the adolescent version for the brands melting pot of thick aromas and complex flavor.  Lightly spiced nuts with caramel and toffee, carry this experience while whispers of herbal remedy and sun soaked fruit linger at the end.

BACK AGAIN (quote #ArsenalFanTv) with another #vegan delight from our neighbors GoodTown Doughnuts #CostaMesa.  This multi-topped #chocolate buttery #brioche hoop calls to the nuances of the whisky.  Hand in hand, both malt and dough skip along as the bitter and slightly citrus coco nibs accent the floral and fruit notes making this a truly sultry and delicate #WhiskyAndDonuts pairing! With time and a bit of opening up, perhaps this tipple will lead us to another  flavor at this amazing local #donut dealer…

We insist in remaining humble and somewhat blissfully uneducated with every sipping experience trusting in the organic process of what will sustain in our memory banks… the cream that rises to the top will always be subjective… so we offer this as a reminder to those who insist on ranking all that is consumed… STOP this is supposed to be FUN.
