Nikka Yoichi Peaty & Salty
Peated Single Malt
Nikka // Japan
The Yoichi Peaty & Salty is only available for purchase from the distillery in Hokkaido. The Yoichi distillery exclusive series takes a new approach to NAS single malts, by clearly stating the expected notes and flavors on the label. Nikka's Miyagikyo distillery has done the same with their own range of distillery exclusives.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"Out of the distillery exclusive series, the Peaty & Salty brings forward the renowned Yoichi character the most. The nose, with notes of sweet oak, vanilla, and sugary, creamy scones prepares one for a sweet experience. Then the palate shocks with deep smoke, earth, and spice. An oily, licorice sweetness joins in, as flower blossoms materialize in the background. A dry, spicy, floral finish ensues."
