Yoichi Non-Peated

Single Malt Japanese Whisky

Distillery Bottling

(70CL / 47% ABV)

Tasting Notes:

NOSE

Refined and balanced. Staying close to its foundations of malted barley, the first nose also reveals aromas of fruit and acacia honey. Becoming increasingly exotic, it then develops a nobly spicy and herbaceous register. Little by little, medicinal notes delicately cover the aromatic palette.

PALATE

Taut and lively. Citrus fruits initially bring a lot of energy to the first impression in the mouth. This lively start is then followed by a beautiful vanilla and almost roasted sequence, the richness of which highlights the incredible balance of sweet and savoury flavours. A particularly mouth-watering bitterness completes the picture.

FINISH

Long and rich. Like the first nose, the start of the finish focuses on malted barley. Aniseed, vegetal and creamy flavours gradually spread across the sides of the palate. On the retronasal olfaction, a handful of nuts and juicy fruits bring pleasing length to the very end of the palate. The empty glass is malty and spicy.

Nikka Discovery Series 2021 Release

Released in late 2021, this is one of two limited-edition whiskies featuring a diversity of ingredients, both non chill-filtered to maximise the flavour of the whiskies. Aromas of acacia honey, golden apple and ginger give way to an energetic palate with citrus fruit, coffee bean, mixed nuts and lingering spice.

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 diversity of ingredients available at the distillery, this expression is made solely from unpeated malts and offers a pleasant surprise that overturns the preconceived “peaty” image of Yoichi.
