Eigashima Distillery's ‘Akashi’
4 Year Bourbon Cask 500ml 61%
Eigashima Distillery was founded in 1888 in the city of Akashi, Hyogo Prefecture, an area blessed with quality water. Eigashima received it's whisky-making license in 1919 and in 1984 established a new whisky distillery. Eigashima presents its Akashi at TIBS for the first time. The four-year bourbon cask was meticulously selected by Eigashima president Mikio Hiraishi himself. Stored and aged in close proximity to the sea and warm earth, it's hard to believe this superb bottle is but a four-year, what with it's fine finish and complex flavors that linger.
