Single Malt Yoichi Whisky (700ml)
Nikka Yoichi Single Malt Whisky is a new release no age statement from the Yoichi distillery. Nikka’s first distillery Yoichi was built in 1934 in a location with similar environmental conditions to Scotland. This distillery is known for producing rich and peaty malt. The traditional method of direct heating distillation is used at Yoichi – pot stills are heated with finely powdered natural coal, producing whiskies with unique aroma and flavour.
Nikka Yoichi Single Malt Whisky has bold peaty notes and an elegant smoky characteristic, whilst maintaining a soft and creamy palate. Launched in September 2015, this whisky has only recently become available in Australia.
Nikka Yoichi Single Malt Whisky is a most enjoyable introduction to the superior quality of Yoichi malt whiskies.

Yoichi Single Malt is described as bold and strong. Pleasant peaty notes and smokiness originating from the traditional direct coal-fired distillation as well as a briny hint delivered by the sea breeze during the aging process.
