The Yoichi Woody & Vanillic is only available for purchase from the distillery in Hokkaido. The 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.

Tasting Notes

"Unexpectedly fruity with apple pie, roasted nuts, juicy apricots, and young oak on the nose. The palate introduces the vanilla alongside rich smoke. Creamy vanilla, cocoa, and juicy fruit bring a long finish, warmed by the rising presence of smoke. "
