World Blended Whisky, Asaka Distillery's Award-Winning Elixir



This World Blended Whisky combines Asaka Distillery's original spirits with whisky from four other global locations, predominantly featuring bourbon barrel influence, with a malt-to-grain ratio of roughly 6:4.
It initially showcases grain and American whisky profiles, gradually revealing Asaka Distillery's unique character, comprising at least 20-30% of the blend.


The flavor profile is elegantly simple, akin to the balance in premium Japanese sake.
Ideal for highball cocktails, it preserves Asaka Distillery's essence while delivering a versatile and refreshing drinking experience.
This non-chill filtered, natural-colored whisky was the World Whisky Awards 2022's Blended Malt category champion, long-awaited by enthusiasts.


Aroma and Taste


The initial taste reveals a brief youthful sharpness and a touch of uniqueness, but ultimately offers a mild and straightforward flavor.
It features a sweet aroma reminiscent of maple syrup, a clean and gentle herbal scent that delights the senses, and a lush malt flavor that spreads smoothly across the palate.


As you roll it on your tongue, you'll find a robust sweetness characteristic of Asaka, along with a slightly damp acidity, the elegance of bourbon barrel influence, subtle smokiness, and the distillery's identity.
The finish is gentle with woody notes, faint spices, and a clear finish typical of a blended whisky.


Recommended Way to Enjoy


When served on the rocks, the sweetness intensifies, with a subtle hint of peatiness emerging.
This added sweetness and enhanced drinkability compared to neat whisky make it more appealing.
The peatiness is understated and nearly imperceptible when consumed straight, a noteworthy characteristic.
In a highball, it offers a refreshing grape-like quality and a touch of spiciness, creating an invigorating experience. It's a versatile and refreshing highball for any occasion and pairs well with food.
