Nikka Yoichi 10 Year Old70cl / 45%
- Japanese Single Malt Whisky
A ten year old, elegantly peaty single malt from Nikka's beautiful Yoichi distillery in Hokkaido, where whisky is made as it used to be in Scotland with small direct-fired stills and matured in the finest wood the company can find. Bottled at 45% for extra oomph. On the face of it, this is expensive for a ten year old whisky, but it's well worth the money in quality terms.

Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Fabulous umami-rich nose, brimming with herbs, balsamic vinegar and savoury peat.
Palate: A medicinal/iodine note is accompanied by rich dried fruit, herbal notes and spicy touches.
Finish: Rich, peaty and satisfying.
Comment: There’s a big peatiness to this whisky, sure, but there’s also plenty of fruit and spice to balance things out.
Distributor's Tasting Notes
Nose: A clean fresh fragrance with notes of peat, light smoke and spice.
Palate: More light peat with some rounded vanilla and tobacco coming from the oak casks.
Finish: Excellent balance between the fruit and oak with some light fruit and flower elements coming through.

Excellent drop. Got 12 bottles of this when it was still at ?60 after being tipped off regarding the insane prices now.
Incredible. Smooth and easy (probably too easy) to drink. For the price it''s one of the best 10 year old Single Malts for me.
Simply the best 10 year old I''ve ever had. Exquisitely well balanced and mouth watering.
Had no idea this would be one of my favorites when I first gave it a try, but it is so easily drinkable and on my short list of must-haves.
It's difficult to understand how a Japanese tenner at this price can be so amazing. It's flawless!
Citrus and floral tones with a wonderful, yet not overpowering smokey finish. This will definitely be a repeat buy
Fantastic! My favorit. The smoke taste came after a while. Try this!
A fantastic whisky, well worth its price. An allrounder to honor any occasion. One of the best 10 yo ever and a must in the daily dram cabinet. "Dangerously drinkable!"
Nada que envidiar a un speyside acabado en Jerez (en verdad, supera a muchos de ellos). Joven pero suave y dulce en su justa medida. Un gran whisky
