This rare version of Yoichi single malt is part of the “Nikka Discovery” series: an inside look at the various experiments made during the whisky making process at Nikka. Focusing on the use of yeasts, this expression recalls estery aroma reminiscent of Ginjyo sake.
NOSE: Fine, distinguished, maritime smoke clearly dominates. Allowed to breathe, it makes way for apple, pear, melon, lily, carnation and mint.
PALATE: Firm, lively. Herbaceous, salty and earthy the whisky shows notes of tulip, cyclamen, Mirabelle and coastal flavours.
FINISH: Long, crisp and smooth with white grapes and plum aromas. Delicate notes of liquorice and smoke can be found also.
