The Akashi Malt Sessions Double Distilleries is a Japanese blended whisky created from spirit distilled at Akashi White Oak and Nagahama – another fast rising distillery that is growing in popularity.
It is made up of three different whiskies – lightly peated malt distilled at Akashi and matured for 4 years in bourbon barrels, lightly peated malt distilled at Akashi and matured for 3 years in Oloroso casks and non-peated malt from the Nagahama distillery.
It brings aromas of dried fruits, candied orange peel, gentle oak and subtle peat smoke, before the palate delivers soft citrus, red berries and more of that softly building peat smoke. Spices appear the longer you hold the liquid on the tongue, predominantly white pepper and cinnamon, and the finish is medium length with smoky tones holding until your next sip.
