About the distillery : Founded in 1918, Chugoku Jozo is a brewery in the Hiroshima region. A producer of liqueurs, sake and shochu, it began producing whisky in 1990 with the creation of the Togouchi range. Their range is marked by great finesse and precision, with ageing in a unique location, a 361-metre-long tunnel dug in 1970. The ideal conditions for maturing, with a constant temperature of 14°C and a humidity level of 80%, allow the flavours to be extracted slowly.
About the Togouchi range : The whiskies in the Togouchi range are all aged in a unique location, a 361-metre-long underground cellar buried at the foot of the Osorakan mountain, not far from the Sandankyo valley. It offers ideal conditions for maturing, with a constant temperature of 14°C and a humidity level of 80%. This allows the aromas to be extracted slowly from the casks, which explains the elegance of the Togouchi range and the crystalline hue of the whiskies.
Detailed tasting notes : This authentic whisky is aged for 15 years in oak casks, giving it a unique character. On the nose, this whisky is delicate and elegant, with pleasant notes of yellow fruit, sweet spices and citrus. On the palate, it is both smooth and mellow, with vanilla and peaty aromas. The finish is persistent, combining bitter chocolate and hazelnut.
