WHISKIES OF THE MONTH
FEBRUARY

White Oak Akashi Single Malt Japanese Whisky (500ml)

$110 (RRP $124)

Most of White Oak’s production is in the form of blended whiskies due to their limited output. Some barrels are aged for long enough for single malt bottling, and when these single malts do come on the market the whisky is named ‘Akashi’. The first Akashi release was in 2007.

This 'No Age Statement' bottling is a new product for White Oak, released in September 2012. It's a blend of 7 YO, 5 YO & 4 YO malts from 3 types of cask. The intention is for this to become the distillery's 'house' expression.

This release is limited to 4500 bottles. Non chill filtered and no colouring added.

  • Type: Japanese Single Malt Whisky

  • Alcohol Volume: 46%
