A very limited treat from what you may know as the ‘White Oak Distillery’ from Hyogo, Japan. More specifically, from cask number 61071. Mikio Hiraishi, the founder of Akashi and the current head of Eigashima distillery, is going hard with the cask creativity, and the results are beyond mouth-watering.
This exciting tipple is a typical Akashi. It is produced in an intricate process that values quality over quantity. The 5-year stretch in Sherry cask leaves (lucky) us with a deliciously smooth and rich sip. Savor the dried fruits, butter, and cinnamon in every hard-to-get glass of this unique Whisky.

Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
