Nikka Yoichi single malt whisky 45% 700ml
The first distillery opened by Nikka founder Masataka Taketsuru in 1934 was The Yoichi Distillery. It produces a smoky and bold style of whisky.
From the northern Island of Hokkaido, Yoichi single malt whisky is from the town of its namesake. A short train ride on a single carriage train from the port town of Otaru. It was here that Taketsuru chose to best emulate the climate of North Western Scotland and produce whisky.
Yoichi Single Malt is described as bold and strong. Pleasant peaty notes and smokiness originating from the traditional direct coal-fired distillation as well as a briny hint delivered by the sea breeze during the aging process.
