Nikka Yoichi Single Malt
Yoichi Single Malt shows the characteristics of Nikka’s first distillery built in 1934. Founder Masataka Taketsuru chose Yoichi in Hokkaido because of similar environmental conditions to Scotland, where he learned how to make whiskey. It is described as strong and bold. Pleasant notes of mortar and smoke originating from the traditional charcoal distillation, as well as a salty suggestion that the sea breeze provides during the aging process.
