You might remember White Oak distillery from a few years ago.  Now it is called Eigashima distillery, a distillery that only started malt production in 1984.  But in these days of extreme demand for all things Japanese, getting hold of even this entry level blend, is a real treat.

This 50:50 blend, malt and grain, has been matured in ex Bourbon, sherry and new oak (type unknown) leaving this blend being richer and fruitier than the entry level Tokinoka.

Official notes read, “very nice roundness in the mouth and combines at the same time a spicy and creamy sharp side, with a soft and vanilla finish”.

And Tokinoka? Translates as, “fragrance of time”.
