Limited to just one or two months out of the year, whisky making takes a back seat at the White Oak Distillery in favor of the production of schochu, sake, umeshu, and wine during the rest of the year. Many of their whisky releases are young, aged less than 8 years, but benefit from the distillery's access to interesting casks. This particular expression has only aged around 5 years but has aged in Konara oak (Quercus Serrata) casks used to age the distillery's shochu, along with ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. It is bottled at 40% ABV.
