On the nose, Yoichi 10 Years Old offers a fresh, herbal profile characterized by complex aromas of dried fruit, ripe banana and malted grain, which blend seamlessly with more subtle notes of black pepper and peat smoke. On the palate, this whisky is both crisp and smooth, with intense flavors of custard, smoky oak, and an elegant touch of peat that carry through to a long, warm finish marked by spicy and woody notes in total balance.
This single malt is made from a blend of malt whiskies that have been distilled and aged for at least 10 years in oak casks, using traditional methods such as direct charcoal toasting, brought back after a visit to Scotland by Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka.
After a seven-year hiatus due to insufficient stocks of old malts, Yoichi 10 Year Old makes its comeback and boasts a perfect blend of Scottish tradition and Japanese finesse to offer a new rich and complex taste experience.

The distillery Yoichi
Located in the north of the archipelago, about 50 km west of the city of Sapporo on the island of Hokkaido, the Yoichi distillery was built in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of the Nikka brand.
The regional climate close to that of Scotland, as well as the presence of peat bogs and a very pure water source are the ideal conditions that Taketsuru was looking for in order to build his own distillery, the very first of his Nikka brand. The harsh winters where temperatures are mostly negative, the sea air and the use of peat for malting barley are at the origin of the strong, powerful and more or less peaty character of Yoichi whiskies.
Made of whiskies exclusively distilled, aged and bottled in Japan.
