Togouchi Peated Cask Finish is a Japanese world blend with a Scottish character created by Sakurao Brewery & Distillery from a blend of single malts and grain whiskies from Scotland and Canada but aged in Japan.
Carefully selected by Funada San, responsible for bottling Togouchi whiskies, the single malts and grain whiskies were first aged in bourbon casks and then matured in casks that had previously contained Islay whisky. During this additional maturation, Togouchi Peated Cask Finish will see its peaty and smoky side brought to light.
The fruity and balanced aromatic profile is marked on the nose by notes of black tea, orange peel and chocolate, then during the tasting appear aromas of honey, coconut and a slight touch of smoked peat. The experience ends in a finish revealing aromas of caramelized sugar, lavender and of course peat.

The brand Togouchi
Togouchi is a special player in the Japanese whisky market. Firstly because the whiskies that make up the range are a blend of Scottish malt whiskies and grain whiskies from Canada.
They are then blended in Japan and aged in an old railway tunnel where the constant temperature of 14°C allows an ideal maturation. This tunnel is located in the city of Togouchi, near Hiroshima, which is obviously where the name of these original whiskies comes from.
