Aged for 12 years in oloroso sherry cask number 203, this whisky is made from a 2010 distillation of lightly peated barley (10ppm). The sherry butt casks are among the largest used for whisky aging, offering a larger contact surface between the wood and the whisky, for a faster maturation and a more intense impregnation.
The tasting reveals a rich and greedy nose, with deep notes of dried red fruits, caramel custard and toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, the whisky is powerful and complex, offering an explosion of dark chocolate, ripe plum, dried fruit, tannin and sherry flavors that blend perfectly with a light touch of toasted oak smoke. The finish is persistent, slightly smoky and woody, with a touch of red fruit and cocoa.
Presented as it is from the cask, without chill filtration or coloring, Akashi Single Cask 12 Year Old Sherry Butt is a rare and exclusive product, with only 630 numbered bottles available.
