Deeply contemplative and intellectual whisky. Intense smoke and peat with luxurious cream, cotton candy, anise, and plum. Savor the lush texture in each sip.
Aged for 3 years in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in ex-umeshu barrels. Highly collectible and very complex.
Eigashima Shuzo, famed for its sake since the Edo period (1603-1868), is one of Japan's oldest whisky distilleries. The first to obtain their distillery license in 1919, they began making shochu and other spirits. Since 1984, they have been producing Akashi whiskies at their White Oak facility in the seaside town of Akashi, near Kobe. Today, they continue to produce sake, umeshu, whisky.
