A single malt whisky made by Nikka Company, distilled at their Yoichi distillery on the northern island of Hokkaido. The Yoichi distillery was founded in 1934 and is the birthplace of the Nikka brand. At Yoichi whisky is made following the traditional methods brought over from Scotland. It is distilled in relatively small copper stills heated by open coal fire, a practice abandoned altogether by Scottish distilleries by now. This expression was composed from spirits that matured for at least 12 years, mostly in ex-sherry casks and some in ex-bourbon casks. The whisky offers characteristic fruity and slightly peaty flavours. Packed in a box reminiscent of the traditional Japanese art of origami.
Nose: Fresh and slightly spicy, with some smoke, apples, pears, vanilla, honey, burnt oak, raisins, nuts and dried dates.
Palate: Deep and expressive, with some orchard fruits, citrus rind, flowers, peat smoke, dried fruits and oak.
Finish: Long, with sweet overtones, smoke and hot spice.
