Tokinoka Black, Blended Japanese Whisky (500ml)
Blended Japanese Whisky
From White Oak Distillery
50% ABV, 500ml
One thing you have to admire about Japanese culture is the way they take everything, even creating tatami mats and raise it to an art form.
With this heritage, what would a Master Blender like White Oak's Akito Ueda create given a free hand? Here it is.
White Oak Distillery Tokinoka Black is produced by mixing hand selected grain whisky (50%) and malt whisky (50%) and then aged to perfection using a triple oak cask method.
First, they use second run bourbon casks to give it smokiness, then sherry barrels to add a fruity edge and finally virgin oak for smoothness.
Nose: Citrus fruits, dried apricots and floral honey.
Palate: Creamy vanilla, exotic fruit and toasted oak lead, with prickles of sweet spice.
Finish: An elegant, medium length finish.
