Whisky Reviews for White Oak NAS
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 74.40 points
- A blend. And not a good one. Enough to get drunk or pour Coke over it.
spicy, malty, a hint of wood, still bright fruits.
Short sweet, then quickly becoming bitter. A few bright fruits in it. The alcohol for 40% sufficiently strong.
Departure in no time, there is still little oak in it.
- Plum Liqueur
This White Oak, without age statement, from the Eigashima or White Oak distillery in Japan, is a blend, not a single malt. White Oak is only active for two months per year, so their output is very limited. This blend, in bottles of 50cl, are available for around 30 EUR. It has matured some 5 to 6 years.
The nose is light and very accessible. Reminds a of plum liqueur. Some krieks as well. And hay in the background. Fairly simply, but pleasant.
The texture is light, honeysweet on plums and blood oranges with a lot of sugars, a nice peppery spiciness and a hint of smoke. This is becoming interesting.
The finish, however, is rather light and very short.
This is a pleasant enough Japanese blend, but nothing more. Thanks for the sample, Thierry.
Boiled berries and floral upfront. Gentle and soft for a young blend.
Vanilla and raw cereal, dusting powder. Light sourness and musky notes
T- Quite full, cooked porridge and oat meal. Restrained fruity sweetness. Frizzy with a layer of chili spiciness. F- Medium length. Touch of spirity at the back and natural fresh wood
bitterness building up at the back of palate. Mild in general.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- Nose of grain with a little solvent. The mouth is much less pleasant, coarse on wood and alcohol. Alcoholic final. Very average.
- Very intriguing blend of very good quality.
Fruits - plums and dried cherries. Some wood/hay smoke. Smoked ham even
Mild body, second wave of peppery spices; sweet and bitter edge to it. The smoke is still here.
Short, light sweetness
- Run away! Unfortunate!
- This Blend is not developed, at the same price as a nikka front the barrel the choice is quickly made.
But time and experience will change its few flaws.
