95 Points - Whisky Advocate
Nikka Whisky was established in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, the first Japanese to ever study the art of whisky production. He built the company's first distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido, a location which he had always considered to be ideal for whisky production, similar in many ways to the Scottish town where he had studied. Miyagikyo, Nikka's second distillery, was built in 1969 in Sendai, Honshu, another pristine location perfectly suited to whisky production.

Distilled and matured for at least fifteen years at the Yoichi Distillery, Nikka Whisky "Yoichi" 15 Year Old is a long-awaited single malt which has finally reached US shores. The distinctive characteristics of this whisky are attributed to a traditional distillation process, in which pot stills are heated with finely powdered natural coal. The resulting spirit offers a refined nose of orchard fruit, roasted nuts, creamy vanilla and oak, with an undercurrent of smoke. Complex, layered notes of ripe apple, walnut, salted caramel, clove, cinnamon and dark chocolate emerge on the full-bodied palate, with hints of black olive and sea salt lingering through the smokey finish.
