Strictly selected from among the malts, and distilled and matured for 12 years or more at the Yoichi distillery – birthplace of Nikka Whisky – this single malt whisky is characterized by the fragrance of aged casks, a mellow well-rounded palate, and a bold, powerful taste.
- Initially sweet with plenty of American oak (vanilla, cream) then comes tinned apricot, something akin to a buttered scone.
- Very smoky, much more than the nose suggests. An explosive peaty attack which is overlaid with intriguing floral notes: tar and blossom. Oily, yet sweet, rich but fragrant.
- Iodine. Black grapes.
