YOICHI 10-year-old Single Malt 45%
This 10 years old Yoichi Single Malt is a Japanese whisky produced on the island of Hokkaido, in northern Japan.
It is a fresh and grassy whisky on the nose, with fruity notes that soften this first impression. The peat is discreet and allows full expression of the aromatic palette.
In the mouth, it is fluid and lively. There is pepper that refreshes the palate, followed by pastry cream that brings roundness, while the shy peat fades away.
In short, this whisky is a real treat for the taste buds, with a rich and varied aromatic palette, as well as a soft and silky texture in the mouth.
An excellent choice for whisky lovers looking for a memorable taste experience.
Nose: Fresh and grassy. Fruity notes soften the first nose. The peat is discreet, allowing full expression of the aromatic palette. With more aeration, pastry aromas emanate.

Finish: Long and dry. Notes of wet earth balance the woody flavours.
Born in 1894 into a family of sake producers, masataka Taketsuru is considered the father of Japanese whisky. After training as a chemist, he was hired by the company Settsu Shuzo which sent him to Scotland in 1918 to do his apprenticeship. He took a passion for whisky and decided to dedicate his life to it. In 1934, he built Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. His growing success allowed him to establish a second one in 1969 near Sendai, Miyagikyo. It is from the single malts of these two distilleries that the Nikka Whisky group declines its entire range of Japanese whiskies.
Yoichi is a whisky distillery located in Japan founded in 1934 by Masataka Turetsuru, the father of Japanese whisky. The location of the distillery was carefully thought out by its creator so that the weather conditions were similar to those of Scotland. The production of whisky began only in 1936 and the marketing will take place only in 1940, under the name of Nikka Whisky. The distillery belongs to the mythical Japanese group Nikka.
