Nikka Whisky Single Malt Yoichi 700ml
Nikka’s Yoichi distillery stands proudly on the windswept coast of Hokkaido, the northern jewel of Japan. Steeped in tradition, this whisky is a testament to the time-honored craft of direct coal-fired distillation, capturing the essence of its unique coastal surroundings and peat-rich terroir.
Full-bodied and smooth, the initial encounter is a dance of mellow peat, evolving into a powerful symphony of smoke, soot, and salty nuances. As the journey unfolds, indulge in the sweet embrace of candied citrus fruits, black licorice, and a tantalizing blend of spices, complemented by floral notes of carnation and iris.
Firm and powerful, the palate delivers a well-balanced assault of peat, smoke, and a melange of spices. Fresh fruits like melon and kiwi interweave with the richness of nuts, offering a complex flavor profile that evolves with every sip. Chocolate notes make a brief appearance, yielding once more to the dominant allure of peat.
Long and silky, the maturity of this expression shines through with an abundance of ripe fruits – pear, Mirabelle plum, and apple. The peat takes on an herbaceous and malty character, while salty undertones provide depth and coastal freshness. The grand finale unfolds with menthol, spicy coriander and dill, and earthy leather and chestnut notes.
