PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

500ml / 50% ABV  (no box included)

The White Oak 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 unusual 50% ABV 8 year old release was matured in an old sherry butt.

Non chill filtered and limited to just 900 bottles worldwide!

 

Tasting Notes

 ** Due to the extremely limited release, we could not locate any tasting notes.  Below are notes from the closest whisky we could find – the White Oak Akashi 5 Year Old Oloroso (Sherry) Cask.

Nose: Dark cherries, cracked pepper, Christmas cake, marmalade, creamed corn, black currents, balsamic, some burnt twigs.

Palate: A richness that belies its young age. Pretty much follows the nose but adds ginger bread, sweetened tea, nutmeg, cocoa, creamed sherry and tangy orange.

Finish: Creamed sherry, peppermint, sweetened tea, tobacco, raisins and the tangy orange.
