White Oak Akashi Single Malt Japanese WhiskyWhite Wine Cask #61091 (500ml / 54%)The photos in this listing are of the actual bottle. No box is included. Bottling Notes The White Oak whisky distillery is located in the city of Akashi in Hyōgo Prefecture, west of Kōbe, facing the Seto Inland Sea. The owner’s family arrived in the area during the Edo period in 1679. Five generations later the business expanded by adding a Sake brewery and a Shochu distillery to its operations and a licence was granted to Eigashima Shuzo in 1888. Whisky became very popular during WWI and with some minor changes to the barley-based Shochu production process, whisky production would be possible. In 1919 the first whisky was produced which predates both Suntory and Nikka and makes Eigashima Shuzo the oldest official Japanese whisky maker. In 1984 Eigashima replaced the production facility with a new building and production line, including new pot stills, mash tuns and washbacks – White Oak Distillery was born. The whisky stills are only in operation for one month every year and so their production quantity each year is minuscule. Most of White Oak’s production is in the form of blended whiskies due to their limited output. Some barrels are aged for long enough for single malt bottling, and when these single malts do come on the market the whisky is named ‘Akashi’. The first Akashi release was in 2007. These sensational whiskies are released in extremely limited quantities. This 4 year old release by Eigashima was matured in a white wine, re-charred, 2nd-fill hogshead (Cask# 61091) sourced from a Yamanashi winery. Non coloured / non chill filtered and limited to just 400 bottles worldwide! Tasting Notes Nose: Big wine influence–tart green apples, grapes and grapefruit. Oaky tannins. Sandalwood. Faint vanilla. Pine forest. Charcoal. A bit of sweetness coming though–caramel and custard, followed by savoury notes–preserved lemon and salty biscuits. Taste: Moderately spicy palate with lingering tannins. Pine. Grape skin. Lemon and eucalyptus. Barley sugar. Glacé ginger. Hints of sour green mango and bitter grapefruit. Finish: Woody and tannic, with fading herbal and spicy notes. Medium in length, turning dry with light smoke. Please note: We import directly from Japan so the labels (and book if included) will mostly be written in Japanese.
