White Oak Akashi 12

The Akashi (あかし) 5yo was quite promising, so let's see what the 12yo can deliver.
Bottled at 50% vol. and seemingly limited to 2000 bottles.

  • Nose: Wood shavings, malt, dry
  • Mouth: Pepper, wood, fruit acids
  • Finish: Woody, pepper, dry, sour peach
Comments: Compared to the 5yo this is rather one dimensional and quite disappointing. Also the wood influence is too strong.
