Info: A no age statement single malt produced by the Yoichi Distillery, the first distillery established by Nikka in 1934.
Nose: Hints of peat and citrusy boiled sweets. Light tropical citrus fruits and some sweet grass notes.
Palate: Thicker than expected. Tiny pinch of spices, lots of citrus sweet malt and the most gentle peaty hints.
Finish: Hints of younger malt notes, medium lasting length.
Thoughts: Easy, enjoyable, fresh and a little different! Nice.
Available: Master of Malt £39.25, or ministryofdrinks.co.uk
