Akashi Single Malt Whisky
The Whiskey: Single Malt
The Distillery: ABV: 46%
If you’re looking for a truly authentic Japanese whisky that won’t break the bank and that offers an experience to that of an expensive, top-of-the-line whisky, Akashi Single Malt is the way to go. Providing a scotch-like flavour profile, the notes exposed are truly enjoyable.
This bottle is so respected, in fact, that it’s often compared to the likes of Suntory’s Yamazaki and other Mars series whiskies! See for yourself, I promise you’ll be delighted.
Bringing in some initial peat, however, masked by smoke and notes of fruit and spice. Other notes include vanilla, sweet sherry, chestnut, and citrus. An overall medium-bodied spirit.
Enjoyed both neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail, you truly can’t go wrong here, for its versatility is unmatched. Beware, however, for its 51.4% ABV is nothing to play with!
As a full-bodied, rich spirit, Nikka ‘From the Barrel’ offers complex beginnings of tobacco and spice, with finishes more smooth such as dried fruits and toffee.
