Ah, Matsui Shuzo's The Matsui Peated, a whisky that encapsulates the artful fusion of Japanese precision and the allure of peat. Bottled at 48% alcohol by volume in 2019 and matured in ex-bourbon casks, this expression promises a journey into the world of smoky complexities and nuanced flavors.

As you approach The Matsui Peated, the nose is likely to be greeted by a symphony of peat smoke, but with a Japanese twist. Imagine a delicate wisp of smoke, subtly intertwining with floral and fruity notes. The ex-bourbon cask influence may bring forth hints of vanilla and caramel, adding a layer of sweetness that balances the smokiness. The nose is an invitation to explore the harmony between peat and the elegance characteristic of Japanese whiskies.

Upon the first sip, the palate is likely to experience a dance of flavors that unfolds with grace. The peat, though present, is not overpowering but rather a companion to the other elements. Picture a medley of citrus fruits, perhaps oranges and lemons, playing alongside the warmth of vanilla and the subtle influence of oak from the ex-bourbon casks. The 48% ABV provides a canvas for the flavors to express themselves, offering a well-rounded and approachable tasting experience.

The conclusion of The Matsui Peated is likely to be a lingering finish that echoes the peat-infused journey. The smokiness persists, accompanied by a gentle fade into notes of dried fruits and a touch of spiciness. The finish is a testament to the balance struck between the peat influence and the maturation in ex-bourbon casks, leaving a lasting impression on the palate.

Matsui Shuzo has crafted a gem in The Matsui Peated, marrying the boldness of peat with the finesse of Japanese whisky craftsmanship. This expression is not just a peated whisky; it's a nuanced exploration of flavors that reflects the dedication to balance and precision for which Japanese whiskies are renowned. Whether enjoyed by enthusiasts of smoky drams or those new to the world of peat, The Matsui Peated is a captivating sip that invites you to savor the artistry within each carefully crafted drop. Cheers to the allure of peat and the mastery of Matsui Shuzo!
