A subtle balance of fruit and refined peat.
 
Made by the Yoichi distillery, the second and smaller distillery of the Nikka Whisky Company. It was founded in 1934 by one of the two most influential men in Japanese Whisky,  Masataka Taketsuru. Yoichi Distillery lies in southern Hokkaido and has three sides surrounded by mountains, a terrain similar to the one found in Scotland, where Masataka studied the art of Whisky production and returned to Japan as a master blender - with a Scottish wife to boot. Yoichi possesses its own cooperage and they are particularly careful when selecting the barrels. Known as Hogsheads, these barrels are made on-site using new oak. Yoichi produces big, oily spirits in the Highland style.
 
Nikka Pure Malt Black is one of three expressions in Nikka’s Pure Malt Series. The series is a skilful combination of single malts, with each bottling devised to satisfy a specific flavor preference - from pure fruit to pure peat. Nikka Pure Malt Black edition offers a subtle balance of fruit and refined peat, which is a result of a selection of very different Whiskies, combining the fruity elegance of the MIYAGIKYO malts, and the smokier notes typical of YOICHI’s strong character. It’s ideal for Drammers looking for a mellow, yet intriguing Whisky with an input of peatiness.
