Nikka Yoichi Limited Edition Apple Brandy Japanese Single Malt Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 47% Age: No Age Statement Country: Japan
Nikka has released Yoichi Apple Brandy Finish and Miyagikyo Apple Brandy Finish as part of limited edition releases from this spirits powerhouse. Both whiskies have spent six months in ex apple brandy casks.
These commemorative single malts are a celebration of the 100th wedding anniversary of Masataka Takesturu and Jessie Roberta (Rita) Cowan, who married in Glasgow on 8 January 1920. The couple had met less than a year prior to their wedding. The couple moved to Japan several years after their wedding and founded Nikka in 1934. The husband-and-wife team have since become known as the mother and father of Japanese whisky. The apple signifies an important and strong symbol for Nikka as Masataka started a business making apple juice and jam from local Hokkaido apples while they waited for the site’s first whiskies to mature.
When Nikka announced they were not releasing any further aged statement bottling’s of Yoichi or Miyagikyo single malt it was a sad time. They are however releasing non age statement releases of our favourite whiskies.
The Nikka Miyagikyo Apple Brandy Finish Single Malt and Nikka Yoichi Apple Brandy Finish Single Malt are distilled from malted barley and matured in a variety of casks which include those of new American oak ex-Sherry casks.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Baked apples, pears and walnuts leads to big bold peaty notes.
Palate: Toffee apples, walnuts and herbal. Very fresh like a fresh leaf salad with smoked meats and apples. Very oily.
Finish: Vanilla, citrus and dried orchard fruits. Some grain biscuits and smoked peaty apples! Exciting whisky indeed.
