Japanese Whisky

White Oak Akashi - Meïsei

4.6

500 ml
  • Made by a Sake Grand Master


    Distinguished from the regular Akashi blend, Meïsei contains a higher percentage of single malts aged in American oak barrels, specifically 45% compared to the regular edition's 30%.


    This change imparts an elegant profile to the whisky, featuring pronounced woody and spicy notes, accented by vanilla, which contribute to a rich and rounded texture.


    The name Meïsei, meaning "celebrity" in Japanese, aptly reflects the whisky's star-like charm, as it unveils its aromatic profile marked with those delightful oak and vanilla notes​.


    Established in 1919 as a sake distillery, White Oak Distillery has a rich heritage. What sets Akashi Whisky apart is its unique production process under the watchful eye of a Sake grand master, known as a 'Toji.'


    With only 8 dedicated individuals crafting this exceptional spirit, White Oak stands as a true micro distillery, ensuring a level of care and expertise that is truly unparalleled.


    The Akashi Meïsei is a limited edition blended whisky exclusively bottled for the French market.

    Undoubtedly, the Akashi Meisei presents a rich and deep nose that gives off an admirable combination of oak and vanilla aromas. The round and smooth palate, accompanied by woody and spicy notes, exudes sophistication and elevates the overall experience. The elegant and woody finish is nothing short of remarkable.

    Very smooth. Surprisingly damn good! Especially a dash of sweet cinnamon!

  • ABV

    40%

  • Nose

    Youthful and spirited, revealing notes of vanilla, caramel syrup, and a touch of spice. A faint herbal quality adds a watery nuance.

  • Palate

    Echoing the nose, the palate conveys a youthful and spirited character. A feeble malty presence emerges during sips but fails to strike a harmonious balance or introduce depth. Subtle hints of caramel linger beneath dominant grain and alcohol notes.

  • Finish

    A short finish with bursts of caramel, grain whisky, lemon peels, and subtle hints of spice and malt.
