White Oak Akashi Sherry Cask Finished 8YO Single Malt Whisky (750mL)

$245.00

From Eigashima Shuzo's White Oak facility, Akashi Sherry Cask is a lightly peated malt. This is a true sherry monster, aged in ex-Pedro Ximenez and finished in Oloroso casks, creating a thick and viscous mouthfeel and an extremely rich palate. Notes of dried friut and leather dominate, with orange rind, baking spice, and a slight balsamic quality. Eigashima Shuzo produces a miniscule amount of whisky, and this is by far their rarest release.

Tasting Notes:

Aroma: Black cherries, balsamic and autumn spice with hints of smoke prevail.

Taste: The palate is all ginger bread, Mandarin oranges, and sherry

Finish: Elements of peppermint and leather on the finish.
