The Eigashima distillery was founded by Eigashima Shuzo in 1888 to produce sake. In 1919, they obtained a license to produce whisky, and soon after started whisky production. It survived the whisky boom of the 70s and 80s unscratched – a clear testimony to the quality of its whisky. This Akashi bottle is a 7 year-old blend, bringing forth the sweetness and depth expected from a bourbon aged release.

So far the company has produced many master pieces and contributed greatly to society. As a consequence, this company based in Hyogo prefecture with its rich trandition of brewing has a well established reputation in the world of brewing.
Mouth (neat): Good – very good, and its relatively simple yet again. Textbook modern, bourbonised malt whisky, with exactly the right amounts of vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and maple syrup. A bit too technical for this taster, but it’s perfect. With water: Ditto. Nice greenness (mint, chives) from the wood. Finish: Medium long, clean, a tad earthier, as often with these whiskies. The expected spiciness in the aftertaste, as well as a certain sucrosity.
There are no other notes at present.
