SKU: WH-6737

WHY: Often considered the Pepsi of Japanese whisky to Suntory’s Coke, Nikka is Japan’s second largest whisky producer, known for its rich and layered whiskies of finesse. Nikka's Yoichi Single Malt has an elegant creaminess that moves seamlessly between vanilla, salted caramel, stone fruits and oak spices with just a touch of smoke.

HOW: Nikka's two distilleries differ in their styles, with Yoichi producing a coastal style of whisky and Miyagikyo producing a classic Highland style. The Yoichi malts are lightly peated and have a salinity to them that nods to Islay and the island malts of Scotland.

WHAT: Nikka was founded in 1940 by Masataka Taketsuru, after having overseen construction of Japan’s first whisky distillery: Yamazaki. Taketsuru was sent to Scotland in 1918 to learn about single malt production, and spent his time interning at the Hazelburn Distillery in Campbeltown. After working a ten year contract with Suntory, he left to build the Yoichi Distillery in 1934. Nikka owns and operates two distilleries: Yoichi Distillery on the island of Hokkaido, and the Miyagikyo Distillery in Sendai. In addition to single malt production, the Miyagikyo Distillery has a large Coffey column still used to make grain whisky for blending, as well as gin and vodka.

Great dram

Get this dram! For the price better than the Yama 12 or Hakushu 12. Especially for the prices those drams go for. This is very balanced and clean. Has fruity notes with hints of ocean w/ a slight peat at the end. Very good!
