Akashi White Oak Single Malt Whisky
From the White Oak distillery in Akashi, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. This single malt represents the malt component of their popular blended whiskey, and is a very unique blend of sherry (Oloroso, PX, and Cream!), brandy, bourbon, wine, American oak and even ex-shochu barrels, all coming together for a complex blend of barrel influences.
The whisky is easygoing, with lots of yellow apple, powdered sugar, angelica root, peach, pear, with hints of sea air lending a nice balance to the sweetness. Bottled at 46% abv.
