White Oak Akashi Single Malt Japanese Whisky from the Akashi range, produced by White Oak in Hyogo, just west of Kobe.
This non-age-statement release ought to prove rather interesting for whisky adventurers looking to try something new.
White Oak’s whisky stills are only in operation for one month every year, and so their production is very small.
Most of it's blended whisky, but when the single malts do come on the market the whisky is named ‘Akashi’ after its hometown. The first Akashi release was in 2007.
AKASHI White Oak Single Malt Whisky is a blend of 7 yrs, 5 yrs and 4 yr malts, from 3 different types of cask, Spanish Cherry Oak, American Oak and Bourbon Oak casks. The single malt whisky has no age statement, but has plenty of rich malty flavor and a supple fruited character.
Color: Rich caramel.
Nose: Sweet, light iodine and clove.
Palate: Pleasant bitterness, full-bodied depth with spice, peat-like character and a hint of aniseed and candied ginger.
Finish: Smokey with some tannin notes.
Non-chill filtered, no coloring, additive free.
Distillery: Eigashima Distillery
Alcohol Content: 46%
