Yoichi Single Malt Whiskey

€79,00 EUR

  • Profile: balanced. Peat, smoke, nutmeg, dried fruits and chocolate.
  • Nose : both firm and pulpy. It oscillates between candied lemon and exotic fruits. Superbly vanilla, it gradually becomes spicy (cloves, pepper, nutmeg). Particularly fresh, it develops with notes of verbena and tarragon.
  • Palate : lively, powerful. She is racy and elegant. Vanilla and praline initially line the palate. The mid-palate gives pride of place to citrus and ripe fruit (pear, plum). Licorice adds an oily touch before honeysuckle, lily and cardamom make it heady.
  • Finish : long, rich. It turns out to be spicy. The influence of aging in bourbon casks shines through the notes of vanilla and milk caramel. Fine notes of ash and smoke gradually appear. The retro-olfaction is marked by sweet orange and mango.
The first distillery of the Nikka house, Yoichi is located on the coast of Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan. 

Produced using traditional methods, such as direct heating over a charcoal fire, the malts perfectly display the authentic character of this exceptional place with their marine and finely peaty notes. A blend of whiskeys of different ages, it expresses a subtle balance between smoky, fruity and floral aromas.

The mouth, lively and powerful, will sleek and elegant watch, offering a long and rich finish.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
