Yoichi Single Malt

Japanese Whisky from the Nikka Yoichi Distillery

After serving his time with Shinjiro Torii at the Yamazaki distillery, Masataka Taketsuru branched out on his own and built the Yoichi distillery in Hokkaido in 1934 and is Japan's most northerly distillery. This NAS (non-age statement) Single Malt release replaces the previous aged statement Yoichis as their aged stock deminishes. It is slightly peaty and is a vatting of various aged whiskies matured in ex-bourbon, sherry and new oak barrels. It's bottled at 45% ABV.
