Our oenologists' opinion
This gold whiskey that has copper-colored highlight releases greedy fragrances of candied fruits allied to the smoothness of vanilla and counterbalanced by a smoked side. In mouth, spiced and wooded notes are perfectly allying with the roundness and the suppleness of this whiskey.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Domain and appellation
White Oak Distillery
The construction of the Eigashima distillery (formerly White Oak) took place in 1984. Built according to Scottish models, they produce refined whiskies in small quantities. This is a largely manual production, carried out by the same local craftsmen who are involved in the production of more traditional eaux-de-vie. The use of this age-old know-how enables the production of unique products that bear no resemblance to Scotch whiskies. The climate also makes the difference, as the large temperature differences between summer and winter help to speed up the ageing process. The popularity of Japanese whiskies in recent years is a sign of the future
