Description

A no age statement single malt distilled at Hokkaido  in northern Japan. This one  has been finished in Sherry Casks, which adds to their experimental range and brings to the table a subtle marriage between the rich peat smoke, melon, milky chocolate notes and the maritime nature of Yoichi whisky the distillery is known for , combined with the fruity flavour imparted from the sherry cask merges into a tasty dram.

This Whisky was bottled in 2018.  As it seems to go with most Japanese editions, it sold out almost instantly and is now in big demand on the market.

Very sought after dram and very hard to get your hands on!
