Nikka Yoichi No Age Japanese Single Malt Whisky 700ml Rare 45%
A no age statement single malt produced by the Yoichi Distillery, the first distillery established by Nikka in 1934. Plenty of fruit notes with a good helping of peat at its core.
Nose: Citrus-flavoured boiled sweets, fresh baking aromas from brown bread and vanilla spice.
Palate: Sweet entry, fragrant, perfumed citrus. Peat comes through with a touch of smoke and a suggestion of coastal character, surrounded by orange peel and cherry.
Finish: Medium length, with a hint of salty breeze lasting, a hallmark of the distillery.
The Japanese have received great acclaim recently for their ever expanding range of single malt whiskies. These are produced just like any single malt whisky, distilled from nothing other than yeast, water and malted barley at a single distillery before a maturation of at least three years and a day in oak casks. There are two main brands that own Japanese distilleries: Nikka and Suntory, founded by Masataka Taketsuru and Shinjiro Torii respectively
