Shed Drink of the Week…. Akashi(White Oak) 14YO 58% abv

Akashi(White Oak) 14YO 58% abv Matured in a Spanish Oak Sherry Cask for 12 and a half years. Finished with a white wine cask from Yamanashi Winery belonging to the Eigashima Shuzou for one and a half years.
Nose: An odd(and strong) mix of coal fire, campfire ash, antiseptic cream, burnt rubber, mushrooms, potato skins, twigs, heavy dry sherry, cherry chocolate and caramel.
Palate: Heavy sherry, burnt rubber, mixed peel, campfire ash, cherry chocolate, brandy, menthol, grapes but red not white and quite some ginger. With water some bitter orange, twigs and honey soy.

Finish: Medium on dry sherry, campfire ash, mushrooms, twigs, cherry chocolate, brandy and burnt rubber. Well done to Eigashima for bottling this one non chill filtered and non colored.
