The eighth bottle to commemorate Malt Yama’s 10th anniversary is “Akashi” from Eigashima Distillery in Akashi City, Hyogo Prefecture.
While the reputation of this whisky has been growing in recent years, this time it is a special bottle commemorating the 10th anniversary of Malt Yama, and the barrels were selected by the master of J’s Bar in Ikebukuro, Mr. Hajime Hasumura.
Tasting notes by Hajime Hasumura, J’s Bar Ikebukuro
The aroma of rice husks and grains with a sense of brightness. Kinako mochi and milk caramel.The next is a rustic banana cake.Gentle honey. Slight root vegetable ashiness as an accent.Woody honey and pineapple on the palate.Pleasant alcohol attack and bitterness.Burnt vanilla wafers.We hope it will be called the “Akashi” standard for bourbon barrels in the future.
Tasting note by Mr.Tadaaki Shimono, owner of Maltoyama
Nose: Gorgeous vanilla, honey, banana shake, soybean flour, freshly cut wood shavings, white pepper, straw lye, a little apple and lemon zest.
Taste: Slightly round and smooth texture, with a pleasant white peppery kick later on, a raw and floral oaky woodiness, honey dust candy, a bit of apple and lemon zest. On the back palate, honey dust candy and a strong oaky woody astringency.
Overall impression: A bottle of Akashi with its unique woodiness and honeyed opulence that allows you to experience the high potential of Akashi.
