    again a very exciting whisky. The "older" Akashi are really a force (unfortunately also priced). This one is really smoky and with the herbaceous note certainly not for everyone.
    He's really fun again. What I have not discovered, however, were white wine notes, more oak and sherry. I also think he was in the sherry barrel before
    • Nose
      herbaceous, surprisingly smoky, much stronger than the 12er, menthol, strong oak, then with time raisins, dried fruit and also the Ölofennote joins
    • Taste
      warm, tart, lots of tannins, menthol, herbs, smoke and a subliminal sweetness
    • Finish
      long on smoke, menthol and tannin rich oak paired with some tobacco and fruit

    Like a smoked Kavalan Sherry Solist! Amazing!
    • Nose
      Intense smoke, chocolate, liquorice, mint, vanilla, salt, raisins.

      Even more intense and balanced with a couple of drops of water.
    • Taste
      Smooth, chocolate, raisins, smoke, when you add water mint and more intense taste appears. 
    • Finish
      Long finish with smoke, chocolate, raisins, mint, lemon... it just goes on and on!
