White Oak Single Malt Whisky AKASHI Aged 15 Years
Stated Age: 15 years old | Strength: 58.0 % Vol. | Size: 500 ml | Bottling: 795 bottles

This ‘Akashi’ single malt whisky has been aged for 12 years in used Spanish Brandy casks. These casks are over 20 years old, have never been reconditioned and are still used today to age various malts at the distillery. It then spent a further 2.5 years in Konara Oak casks. Konara (Quercus serrata) is related to the famous Mizunara. Eigashima uses Konara oak to mature some of their Nihonshu (Sake) and when they decided to transfer some of their oldest stock to ex-white wine casks from their winery in Yamanashi two and a half years ago, they had enough left to fill one more cask. And so the remainder of that whisky – that had been maturing in Spanish Brandy casks for 12 years and a half – was transferred to a virgin Konara cask. After 2 years and a half of further maturation in Konara, their 15yo was released.
