Nikka 15 Year "Yoichi" Old Japanese Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1116990

Finally here! With the global appetite for Japanese whiskey reaching a feverish level, the second biggest company on the island has finally graced the United State with its presence. Nikka has long been the Pepsi to Suntory's Coca-Cola. With more richness, nuttiness, and stone-fruited character than something like the Yamazaki 12, the 15 year old is a peated (aka smoky) expression from Nikka that offers incredible depth and nuance in a very elegant package. A remarkable whiskey for those in the know.

Nikka's northern distillery on the island of Hokkaido makes a slightly peated style of whisky; more along the line of Talisker, however, rather than Lagavulin. It's rounded and supple on the palate as well, making it one creamy, and slightly smokey delight.

If I was tasting this blind, I would have a little trouble distinguishing this release from the 15 year old Laphroaig when it was still around. The Nikka 15 year old has just a little more body to it. Classic peaty Islay tasting whisky from a place you wouldn't expect.
