The White Oak distillery, located in the city of Akashi (Hyogo Prefecture), was the first to obtain a license for distilling whisky in 1919. Built in 1888 for the production of sake and shochu, at the beginning the distillery produced only blend whisky in a traditional way and especially reserved for the domestic market. Then the site was modified in 1984 to start producing whisky in bigger quantities. The Eigashima Shuzo Company owner of the distillery, produced since 2007 several single malt named Akashi.
And it's a mixture of these different Akashi single malt that we will discover in this Tokinoka which means "fragrance of time" in japanese. It is therefore not an old blended malt but an entry level one bottled at 40% in a little White Oak whiskies typical bottle form of 50 cl.
