Akashi Blue Label
Akashi Blue Label is from Akashi whisky – the only whisky in the world that is made by a Toji (grand-master in the art of sake making) by implementing sake-making methodologies into the whisky-making process. The distil pot used is smaller than those used by both Scottish and other Japanese distilleries, which in turn, decreases the levels of fusel alcohol. As a result, Akashi whisky does not require as long of an ageing process, while its new make is smooth and delicate.
Akashi Blue Label is a blended whisky matured in Japanese Shochu cask (American Oak) around 2 years, aged in a bourbon cask before finishing in sherry casks for 1 year.
