Ohishi Distillery 8 Year Old Ex-Sherry Cask
The Whisky is distilled in traditional Japanese stainless steel pot stills before getting some beauty rest in ex-sherry and brandy casks, in the mountainous Japanese countryside. Being aged at such high altitudes yields an elegant Sherry symphony. This Ohishi Sherry Cask is a blend of casks anywhere from 3 to 25 years old.
Nose: The nose is rich with sherries, full of raising fruit and baking spice, notes of oak, nuts, citrus, grains, pepper, brown sugar, and dried flowers.
Taste: On the palate, there are dried cherries and apricots, vanilla, oak, citrus, floral notes, and spices.
Finish: Hints of cocoa on the finish.
Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 42.2%
