Located in the north of the Japanese archipelago on the island of Hokkaido, the Akkeshi distillery, which began operations in 2016, presents a new half-Japanese blended whisky.
The Japanese malt influence is expressed throughout the tasting, on the nose with notes of orange tea, brown sugar and strawberry, on the palate with citrus flavors and a touch of salty peat. The finish is pleasantly surprising with spicy notes of white pepper, the bitterness of cocoa and the sweetness of chocolate
Peated malt distilled on site occupies more than 50% of this blend, which also contains imported New Pot Grain and aged for more than 3 years in the distillery's cellar located on a hill overlooking Akkeshi Bay.
Akkeshi Daikan is the sixth whisky in the "24 Sekki" series inspired by the ancient Japanese calendar where a year is divided into 24 solar seasons, each of which has a name and is associated with a specific seasonal change such as the onset of winter or the spring equinox. Daikan, the 24th and last season, refers to the period of winter when the days are coldest.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
Details Akkeshi Blended Whisky Daikan
The distillery Akkeshi
Founded in 2013 by the Kenten Company, Akkeshi Distillery is sometimes referred to as the little Lagavulin for its similarities to the famous Scottish distillery.
Akkeshi is the second Japanese whisky distillery based on the island of Hokkaido after the famous Yoichi distillery of Nikka. Like its neighbor, it is inspired by the Scottish spirit with its pair of Forsyths traditional pot stills and the use of peated barley to produce single malts with a strong peaty character like those of Islay.
