Nikka Yoichi 15 YO

Japanese Whisky
45% Alcohol content


In 1918, Masataka Taketsuru travelled from Japan to Scotland and studied chemistry at the University of Glasgow. In 1920 Masataka married his wife, Jessie ‘Rita’ Roberta Cowan, and the couple lived for a few months in Campbeltown. They returned to Japan later that year. In 1934, Masataka established Nikka Whisky and his first distillery was built in Hokkaido and named Yoichi. The area was well-suited to whisky production, though its location was remote.

Tasting Notes

Taster: The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is gentle and creamy with light fruits and a little nutty development. The palate is quite sweet with notes of subdued peat, winter spice and a nutty note. The finish is long and beautifully bittersweet.


A delicious single malt from the Yoichi distillery, founded by Masataka Taketsuru in 1934. Taketsuru deemed the terroir to be perfect for whisky production, as this 15 year old will testify.
