The White Oak Akashi Single Malt comes from the White Oak distillery in Hyogo, where for 10 months out of the year the distillery exclusively produces sake and shochu. The whiskey is distilled from slightly peated barley and aged for an undisclosed amount of time in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. It is bottled at 46% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"A very approachable expression with a rather honey-forward nose boasting notes of fresh orchard fruits, peaches, oak and a subtle smokiness. The palate delivers more honey, sweet spices and herbal/earthy aromas. All that said, the obvious lack of depth and subtlety makes the whiskey overall a disappointment. "
