Description

Relaunched in 2016 comes a no age statement single malt produced by the amazing Yoichi Distillery, the first distillery established by Nikka in 1934.

This whisky is blend of various single malts from different years thus making this stunning Nikka a No Age Statement Whisky!

The Yoichi Distillery is one of Nikka’s two malt distilleries, it uses imported Scottish peat, and distills on old-school coal-fired stills.

Nikka formerly sold 10-year-old to 20-year-old Yoichi, but has discontinued them all in favour of this 45% ABV NAS.

Overall a good well balanced dram. Fruit, peat, spice, sweet and nice it hits many of the right notes.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Full-bodied, smooth. A mellow peat softly coats the aromatic palette at first, growing more powerful with time, as smoke, soot and salty notes transcend the initial nose.

Palate: Firm, powerful. A well-balanced attack gives equal footing to aromas of peat, smoke, spices, fresh fruit and nuts, which it delivers in spades. The mid-palate starts off with chocolate notes, but the peat soon takes the lead once again.

Finish: Long, silky. Extremely mature, it overflows with ripe fruit.The peat starts taking on an herbaceous and malty character, while the salty flavours gives the finish plenty of depth and coastal freshness. The final nose offers menthol, spicy and earthy notes.
