Akashi - Blended - Blind Tasting #14 - Flaviar Advent Calendar 2022

Flaviar Advent Calendar (2022) - The Depths of Whiskey. Whiskey #14. Product of Japan, 40% abv.

The smell is soft oak and vanilla, light honey, and fresh bright tropical fruits. (banana and green apple)

The taste - It’s thin and the flavors are also light. Soft fruitcake-like spices, soft vanilla, oak, and honey.

The finish is short - mostly vanilla and the spice and oak flavors round it out.

This is a decent Japanese whisky - very similar character throughout all of the lower-end Japanese whiskies I have come across. There is nothing wrong with this. It isn’t something I would go out and purchase but to be fair, most “affordable” Japanese whiskies fall a little short for me.

Overall Grade: C (Average)
