Akashi White Oak Single Malt

Akashi White Oak Single Malt

Official bottling
Single malt - West Honshu
46% ABV

Nose: White grapes, dried pears, guava, peanuts, cream, hints of walnuts. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, slippery, loose, slightly oily. 
Tasting:  Sweet sour. Raisins, dried pears, guava, palm sugar, peaches, hints of walnuts, hints of white grapes. 
Finish: Short. Guava, white pepper, peanuts, peaches, hints of photocopy paper. 


This is the sister bottling to the White Oak blend, the whisky that didn't taste like whisky. This one is definitely whisky though - ooked and dried fruits in abundance, with plenty of spicy pepper in the finish. The hints of paper and white grapes remind me of its sibling.


I like this.
