Nikka Yoichi Single Malt Japanese whisky -750 ml
Yoichi Single Malt is a range of single malt expressions from the Yoichi Distillery, Nikka's first distillery built-in 1934. The founder Masataka Taketsuru chose the town of Yoichi in Hokkaido because of the similar environmental conditions to Scotland, where he learned whisky-making. Yoichi malts are described as bold and strong with refined peaty notes and smokiness brought by the traditional direct coal-fired distillation. Sea breeze from the Ishikari Bay delivers a briny hint to the whisky during maturation.
