Tasting notes by Hajime Hasumura, J’s Bar Ikebukuro

The aroma of rice husks and grains with a sense of brightness. Kinako mochi and milk caramel. Next, rustic banana cake. Gentle honey. Slight root vegetable ashiness as an accent. Woody honey and pineapple on the palate. Pleasant alcoholic attack and bitterness. Burnt vanilla wafers. Expect this to be called the standard for future bourbon barrel testimonials.

Maltoyama Tasting notes by the owner, Koumei Shimono

Nose: gorgeous vanilla, honey, banana shake, soybean flour, freshly cut wood shavings, white pepper, straw lye, a little apple and lemon zest.

Taste: slightly round and smooth texture, then a pleasant white pepper-like stimulation, raw and gorgeous oaky woodiness honey soybean flour candy, a little apple and lemon zest. The finish has a strong oaky woody astringency with honey dust candy.

Overall impression: A bottle of Akashi with its unique woodiness and honeyed floral notes, which allows you to experience the high potential of Akashi.
