Top reviews for Akashi White Oak Blended Japanese Whisky:

— Could drink every evening. Very smooth and hits my palate just right.

— I normally like a full-bodied, somewhat sweet, caramel-y bourbon, and had never given much thought to Japanese whiskys other than in cocktails. The bartender at my local izakaya thought this would be a good start at trying something more, and she was right! It's like all the best things about a lighter bourbon with a bit of complexity I usually associate with scotch (and I am NOT a scotch person). It opened me up to new possibilities I hadn't considered and I'm now working my way through (and up) the Japanese whisky ladder. Getting a bit hard to find now in the Midwest, but I've come across it on both coasts. Definitely worth it!

— very smooth & sweet tasting. hint of apple. highly recommend!

Very smooth.
 
Dusty
Dusty,
I've always been a whiskey drinker, so I decided to try something completely different from my norm. Although, this has a good flavor (strong oak flavor), it had a strong burn at the end, a little smooth, but overall just ok.
 
Steve
Steve,
Not normally a "blended" guy (favor still Macallan 21) , but this is very smooth and very flavorful.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Not complex at all... I was a bit disapointed as I was looking for something more delicated, there is a strong alcohol taste above any other flavor

Danny,
Akashi is one of those whiskeys you should have in your arsenal. When all else, it is truly a whiskey to have at the end of the day, and you will not be disappointed. I attempted the whiskey cold, with ice, water, and mixed. I would recommend keeping it straight up for a better taste.

So smooth. So delicious!
 
Doug
Doug,
a nice Japanese whisky with a good amount of oak flavor and a bit of dryness on the finish. I do taste the caramel and vanilla, but I find this one best used in cocktails rather than taken neat.
 
Captain
Captain,
Enjoy this whiskey. Easy to sip on. Carmel and smooth with a great finish. I suggest some 86% cacao between, just does something for my palate.

Nicholas,
My current favorite and great to taste after a classic Scotch to see the differences. Sweet, but not over powering, lots of caramel and ‘nilla

Margos,
While it is smooth with distinct vanilla notes in every sip, it is not have complexity ...missing "mmmm, wow"
 
Andrew
Andrew,
I ordered this off the heels of the Blended vol 2 box because the Togouchi was unavailable. I have never been so happy to pick a replacement bottle. Smoothest that I have tried with a refreshing sweetness. Would recommend to anyone. My current favorite.

Andrew,
Sweet and a touch smoky. So very tasty!

Shernard
Shernard,
Amazing flavor, amazing smell. Just the right amount of sweetness. Tastes like it should easily be worth 3 times the price.
 
Joe
Joe,
A bit of a fruity scent smooth finish no burning, spice of a star anise flavour
 
guest

Sake, Vanilla, Carmel, and smooth, silky finish... it’s a everyday kind of Whisky.
 
Henry
Henry,
Very easy drinking. I heard that Akashi used to primarily be a sake maker. On that note, I can definitely taste the resemblance of bright rice notes in this whisky. Not complex at all however and doesn't have lasting strength. Just an easy drinker.
 
Thaine
Thaine,
Not my favorite whisky. I was expecting something smoky or peaty, but this has a very strong alcohol odor and finish.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, delicate, Japanese blended whisky with a sweet & creamy death of medium length.
 
Rudy
Rudy,
For the price a very good whisky, in my opinion, soft, smooth, easy to drink !
 
guest
guest,
Certainly a great pairing with dessert. Not bad at all. Nice sweetness without being overbearing.
 
Ty
Ty,
Akashi blended whisky is tough to drink neat. I don't like to give poor reviews, but it's just not very good. The nose is decent, reminiscent of Johnnie Walker Black 12. Sweet and a little smoky. The palate and finish fall short though. The sweetness on the nose gives way to a note of cleaning supplies on the palate. Akashi has been relegated to being a mixer in my house, which means it's just sitting in my whisky cabinet not being consumed.

Appearance: Obviously coloured Nose: A hint of Vanilla? Palate: Obvious burning feeling. Poor Finish: Burning felling vanished Overall: Nth special in aroma and taste; the burning feeling dominated.
 
Alex
Alex,
Not too interesting on the nose but a sweet, easy-drinking whisky.
 
guest
guest,
Not anything special, overly spicy over the honey and sweet notes. Very dull baking spice aroma. Not much floral even though there is a Sherry finish and believed to be 3yo in ex bourbon casks. Pass.

Smooth, light, sweety Japanese Whisky.
