Product Description

Treat your taste buds to something exotic by enjoying this bottle of the limited edition Akashi Sommelier Series Wine Cask Matured Single Malt Whisky.

Beginning operations in 1984, the White Oak distillery was established at the perfect time to take advantage of the sudden boom of the Japanese whisky Industry. Marketing their single malt and blended expressions under the Akashi label, the distillery makes up for its lack of history with unique and complex flavors that will beguile novice and seasoned drinkers alike.

One of their more recent creations is the Akashi Sommelier Series Matured Single Malt Whisky, an innovative expression that blends together a wide variety of flavor into one bottle. Made exclusively from malted barley, the whisky is aged in a combination of various casks including bourbon, sherry, brandy, wine, shochu, and new American oak before being finished in used non-vintage Pinot Noir casks. This imparts the whisky with a sweet, fruity, and somewhat spicy flavor profile that is both interesting and approachable.

Each sip begins with a scrumptious honey-forward nose supported by notes of orchard fruits, peaches, oak, and spices. This then gives way to a luscious and savory palate of dark fruits, cherry, malt, toffee, walnut loaf, nutmeg, sweet spices, and more oak, culminating in an exceptionally delectable and medium-length finish of dried apricots, oats, honey, and more spices.

A great introductory tipple to those curious about Japanese whisky, this Akashi Sommelier Series Wine Cask Matured Single Malt Whisky is a definite must-try for any avid whisky fan. So pick up a bottle today and get lost in the complexity and depth found in every sip of this fine single malt expression.
