Yoichi 20 Year Old
A Japanese single malt bottling from Nikka's flagship distillery in Hokkaido. Nikka was founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, a former Suntory employee who had studied at the University of Glasgow, and later trained as a blender at the now lost Hazelburn distillery in Campbeltown. Taketsuru opened the Yoichi distillery in the same year as establishing the company, modelling its pot stills on the long-necked design of the Longmorn stills in Speyside.
Formerly the pinnacle of the Yoichi core range, the 20 year old was discontinued along every other age-statement in 2015 after Nikka were hit by stock shortages due to the unforseen popularity of their products.
