Akashi NAS Single Malt Whisky is a blend of 7-year-old, 5-year-old and 4-year-old malts, from 3 different types of cask, Spanish Cherry Oak, American Oak and Bourbon Oak casks.
Tasting Notes: An exciting expression from Akashi, that uses its youthful fire to good effect. Herbal and woody, you’d be forgiven for thinking of the forest floor whilst sipping this dram.
Nose: Herbs and pine on the nose, rather forest like. Some white grape. Dry oak, with lavender and floral undertones. Some tobacco smoke.
Palate: Rich malt with pungent grapes, full-bodied depth with spice, peat-like character and a hint of aniseed and candied ginger. Pine note. Oak and floral notes accompany slightly bitter citrus rind
