White Oak distillery from Akashi (close to Kobe) was the first distillery to obtain a license for Whisky Making in Japan back in 1919, four years before the famous Yamazaky. White Oak Distillery is part of the group “Eigashima”, one of the oldest Sake producer (1679). The Tokinoka Japanese Whiskey is the expression of taste and Japanese skills accuracy and balance of flavours, delicate texture. Tokinoka means ‘fragrance of time’ in Japanese.
This blended whiskey 75% single malt 25% grain, offers a light nose with cereal and fruity aromas (Peach). In the mouth: soft attack, then he takes a lot of strength on the palate, with a nice power a little spicy. Very balanced, it has a nice aromatic range between malted cereals, fruit (especially peach) and almond and vanilla notes made by the barrel aging. The finish is long on malted barley, cream, vanilla and oak.
