The Kurayoshi Pure Malt Blended Malt Whisky doesn't really belong in this list but sneaks it's way in due to a bizarre lack of legislation in Japan. As there is no legally protected definition of Japanese whisky this is actually a Scotch single malt whisky, matured for three years and then finished in sherry casks and bottled in Japan. There's no denying that this whisky is something of an abomination but surprisingly it works, it has a Balvenie-esque nose, a round chocolate-y palate with lots of orange and almond. We include this one in part because it's a legeslative anomally that will likely be resolved in the next few years
The Kurayoshi Pure Malt Blended Malt Whisky is a blended malt whisky. Rated an average of 4.5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers and available from Master of Malt for only £72.95, falling slightly short of liquid gold but this in a solid everyday blended malt whisky.
