Tokinoka, which means "scent of time" in Japanese, is a blend of single malts and grain whiskies matured in sherry, Bourbon and Shochu casks.
Its delicate and balanced profile, and its beautiful aromatic range make Tokinoka an ideal whisky to be initiated to Japanese whiskies. Bottled in a pretty little 50 cl bottle with the typical shape of White Oak whiskies, this Japanese blended has everything to seduce from the opening with a greedy nose between cereals and honey. When tasted, its light style expresses vanilla and malty aromas that continue in the mouth with elegance and refinement.
The White Oak distillery, located in the city of Akashi (Hyogo prefecture), was the first to obtain a distillation license for whisky in 1919. Built in 1888 for the production of sake and shochu, single malt production really started when the site was modernized in 1984. The Eigashima Shuzo Company, which owns the distillery, has been producing the single malt called Akashi since 2007.

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.
