Nikka presents the 2018 limited editions of its single malts Yoichi and Miyagikyo, with this brand new version of its famous peat-flavored single malt finished one year in old casks of American whiskies known as Bourbon casks.
The result is surprising with the specific aromatic imprint of Bourbon casks mixed with flowery aromas and fine peat of this Yoichi Bourbon Wood Finish bottled unchillfiltered at 46% in order to keep as much as possible the power of its aromas.
Founded in 1934, Yoichi is located on the coast of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island. The specificity of the distillery is to produce its single malts according to traditional methods, such as direct coal fire.
Product limited to 2 bottles per order.
Details Yoichi Bourbon Wood Finish
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.
