Akashi White Oak Whisky
A Japanese blended whisky that has been the subject of some controversy. The bottling for the home market in Japan is made with malt whisky and molasses spirit, which would not be classed as ‘whisky’ in the EU.
This export version, however, is made from malt and grain whiskies.
The nose is very fruity with apricots and dried fruits, and a shy note of honey.
