It's a mixture of these different Akashi single malts that compose Tokinoka which means "fragrance of time" in Japanese. It is therefore not an old blended malt but an entry level one bottled at 40% in a little White Oak whiskies typical bottle form of 50cl. Its delicate fruity aromas make the Tokinoka an ideal whisky to begin with japanese whiskies.
The White Oak distillery, located in the city of Akashi (Hyogo Prefecture), was the first to obtain a license for distilling whisky in 1919. Built in 1888 for the production of sake and shochu, at the beginning the distillery produced only blend whisky in a traditional way and especially reserved for the domestic market. Then the site was modified in 1984 to start producing whisky in bigger quantities. The Eigashima Shuzo Company owner of the distillery, produced since 2007 several single malt named Akashi.

Our tasting experience of Tokinoka.
Amber color with a touch of orange. On the nose, it is a very fruity whisky, apricot and dried fruits, with a light note of honey. In the mouth, the aromas of dried fruits and apricot are well present and confirm the nose. The finish is sweet but rather short, where honeyed notes reappear.
