Shin Classic Whisky
Shin and Akashi whisky is 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 core malt (cask strength) is smooth and delicate.
Akashi Shin Classic Whisky is a blended whisky and is matured in Japanese Shochu cask (American Oak) for 2 years. It is then aged in ex-bourbon casks before finishing in ex-sherry casks for 1 year.
