White Oak Akashi Sake Cask 3 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whisky (500ml)

$199. 00
$2388.00 Dozen
ABV: 50%
The small scale White Oak Distillery in Akashi is part of the Eigashima Shuzo company (founded in 1888), best known for its sake and shochu production. Given its history, it's not surprising that they've decided to mature whisky in x-sake barrels. These casks are relatively unusual (sake typically isn't aged for long, and when it is aged, it's rarely in oak). So, quite possibly Akashi are offering the only whisky in the world to have been aged in American oak x sake casks. We've received a very small allocation. 50% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Other reviews... Whoa! Here's a fantastic whisky that you need in your collection. Don't be fooled by the 3 year aging -- it's already quite amazing where it is. 50% abv isn't absurdly high but I did find this one better with a couple drops of water. Be sure to grab a bottle if you can. - nomunication.jp
