Located 50 kilometers west of Sapporo, on Hokkaido Island, the Yoichi distillery cannot be ignored with ripe stone and red roof. It combines tradition with an aesthetic which only the Japanese have the secret. This version of Yoichi ageless is the worthy representative.

Impressions of vanilla, praline, then citrus and ripe fruit

70cl - alc. 45% vol.

About the distillery : It was a sake producer, Mr. Taketsuru, who created the Nikka brand. He is considered the father of Japanese whisky. Trained as a chemist, he was sent to Scotland by his employer for an apprenticeship, where he discovered whisky and fell in love with it, along with a beautiful Scottish girl named Rita. In 1934, he established Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. In 1969, his second distillery opened in Miyagikyo. Today, Nikka whiskies are a huge success, far beyond Japan's borders. The Nikka group produces its entire range of whiskies from the single malts of its two distilleries.

Detailed tasting notes : The nose is both firm and full-bodied, oscillating between candied lemon and exotic fruit, superbly vanilla-flavored and evolving towards spices such as clove, pepper and nutmeg. Freshness is expressed with notes of verbena and tarragon. On the palate, liveliness and power combine with elegance, with an initial impression of vanilla and praline followed by citrus and ripe fruits such as pear and plum. Licorice adds an oily touch, complemented by heady notes of honeysuckle, lily and cardamom. The long, rich finish reveals spicy notes, the influence of bourbon barrel aging with vanilla and butterscotch, and nuances of ash and smoke. Retroolfaction is marked by sweet orange and mango.
