The Yoichi Single Malt, made in the Yoichi Distillery, conveys strength, softness and delicacy. This single malt whisky is stored and matured for 15 years or more, is characterized by its mature and ample nose and smooth, silky palate.
The pot stills are still heated by naked flame, a traditional method that has been abandoned by most of the Scottish distilleries.

"This elegant single malt from Nikka bears a dark, vibrant gold color, with smoke and caramel aromas. On the palate, look for well-balanced notes of citrus peel, cedar and oak, and a gentle waft of smoke. An astringent sensation on the finish sets the mouth watering, leading to a full-bodied, almost oily texture. Recommended for sipping neat." (Kara Newman)
