Akashi Blended Sherry Cask Finish is a whisky created by Mikio Hiraishi the owner and Master Blender of the Eigashima distillery formerly called White Oak.
A blend of grain whiskies from various sources and 30% malt whiskies distilled in Eigashima, Japan, all whiskies were aged in American oak casks for at least three years, then matured for 6 months in sherry casks, the famous Andalusian wine casks.
This blend has a rich and gourmet profile expressing notes of vanilla, dried apricot and orange zest on the nose. On the palate, the soft and mellow texture is accompanied by spicy, woody aromas and notes of dried fruits typical of sherry cask matured whiskies. This complementary maturation is felt in the rather long and elegant finish where the woody notes rub shoulders with the vinous notes of sherry.
