Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

31. Mar 2019
In times where fake Japanese whisky is flooding the market, it is refreshing to have malts like Akashi. Originally a sake producer, Eigashima built White Oak Distillery in 1984. The nose of this Single Malt is very Japanese: polite, elegant and restrained. Yeast dough, maple syrup and shortbread mix with anise, lime and hints of baked apple. Honey-sweet and full-bodied in the arrival, the taste develops gingery and oaky with matcha green tea, juniper and sour berries. Licorice, fresh herbs and fading tannins mark the substantial finish. What a pleasant surprise!
