Akashi White Oak Malt Grain Eigashima Japanese Whisky
Unusual and complex, the aroma peels back and forth in layers of fruits such as yellow apple, black currants, dark cherries and angelic fruits, while also mixing in the baked pleasures of Christmas cake, powder sugar, honeyed tea
Pull through the aroma while adding to the already complex nature with ginger nutmeg, cocoa, orange very surprising for a whiskey so young with a medicinal layer to still hold the attention
Medium Finish with a Creamy sherry and peppermint coating relaxing the mood
The Akashi Eigashima Whisky is unusual in the amount of layers it brings to the table. Its medicinal layer is clearly evident throughout but doesn’t wholeheartedly detract from the whiskey itself. The only drawback is with so many layers in every aspect, where do stop to enjoy just a few and breathe in an intoxicating effect.
