Yoichi Limited Edition 2019
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.
A non-age statement single malt from Nikka's flagship distillery. The company was forced to discontinue all of its age-statement products in 2015 after Nikka were hit by stock shortages due to the unforeseen popularity of their products, with expressions like this becoming the new normal. This was a premium limited release in 2019.
