Bottled Japanese honesty.

Japan is a magical land, protected by the ocean, far away from everything we know and even understand. Solitude means purity. The purity of water, earth, and sky. Solitude also means purity of Spirit. Eigashima Distillery, located in the town of Agashi, just a stone’s throw away from Kobe Bay, is molded by these elements. Here, a couple of feet from the ocean, the owner’s family has been making Spirits for centuries. Eigashima Shuzo also holds Japan’s first Whisky license, issued all the way back in 1919, but to this day remains one of the country’s smallest Whisky producers. Quality over quantity is the motto. This is where we speak the same language.

The beautiful Akashi Blended Whisky is the purest incarnation of Japanese distilling tradition, their precision, honesty, and that perfect sea-side climate with its salty air and huge temperature differences between seasons. Lightly peated, copper-pot distilled, and matured in ex-Bourbon, Shochu, and virgin oak casks, it's a balanced, fruity, and approachable Spirit. In other words ― it's the perfect entry point into the wonderful world of Japanese Whisky.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Deep gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It's a delicate fruity burst with apricots, dried fruit, citrus, and wood on the nose.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Approachable, pure, and clean, the palate has a pleasant sweetness, a dash of caramel, honey, and spice, as well as a light touch of peat.

Finishes with a lingering fruity sweetness and slightly peaty. 
Ratings & Reviews
My Japanese experience is limited, but for the price, I like it. Caramel and some wood spice is what I get on the palate. A little light and fruity on the nose. My favorite Japanese to date is the Yamazaki 12, and this isn’t nearly as good as that, but costs about 1/3 as much. Still enjoyable. Better than a couple other bottles I’ve had that cost more. For this price, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again.
Not much flavor comes with the harsh chemical aftertaste. Not recommended as a sipping Whiskey, ok for cocktails
Terrific value. Under the radar release reminiscent of higher priced Japanese blends.
