White Oak Akashi 2008 for Shinanoya #1130

A five year old whisky matured in a Wild Turkey bourbon cask. Bottled in 2013 for the Shinanoya department store with 58%vol.

  • Nose: Rather subdued, lemon, vanilla, mint and tree sap, some slight pinewood
  • Mouth: Surprisingly mild with no harshness, very oily, grassy
  • Finish: Honey, vanilla (like Häagen Dazs vanilla ice cream), some oak, french fries !?, very mild
Comment: There is an ever so slight harshness lingering in the background with an creamy and oily mellowness in the front.

84 points
