Discover Nikka Yoichi Single Malt:

Nikka’s first distillery opened in 1934, and this single malt hails from that establishment. Yoichi in Hokkaido was chosen by founder Masataka Taketsuru because of its proximity to the climate and geography of Scotland, where he had studied whisky production. Traditional direct coal-fired distillation gives Yoichi single malt its pleasing peaty flavors and smokiness; the sea air adds a briny hint during the aging phase.

The original Nikka distillery was established at the namesake town on Hokkaido’s western coast. The essence of success in this case is authority. In addition to the smoke and the deep, rich oiliness (something between linseed and cod liver), I pick up hints of smokiness and black olives in brine, and in the background, I find ripe apples. Yoichi is the Japanese single malt that most closely resembles Springbank, a Scotch single malt, if I were to make a comparison (edging into Longrow). I prefer my beverages without water, where the flavor is bold and uncompromising. A layered whiskey, with coal-like, oily, highly fruited, and noticeable saltiness on the sides, it proves that Japan has almost as much variety to give as scotch on the palate rather than displaying a leisurely procession of tastes down the tongue.

Masataka Taketsuru, the creator of Nikka and often called the “father of Japanese whisky,” sprung from a family of sake brewers as far back as 1733. He studied chemistry since he was destined to carry on his family’s business of distilling spirits, and the spirits corporation Settsu Shuzo promptly snapped him up. In 1918, Settsu Shuzo dispatched Taketsuru to Scotland in an effort to start a whisky production line for Japanese whisky. He became the first Japanese student to ever study whisky production at Glasgow University. He studied chemistry in college and worked as an apprentice in distilleries, where he gained knowledge directly from masters and honed his skills as a blender. In the course of his apprenticeship, Taketsuru met the Scottish woman with whom he would later fall deeply in love: Jessie Roberta Cowan. An further year passed before they tied the knot. Jessie renamed herself Rita and relocated to Japan with Taketsuru; she would go on to serve as his inspiration and pillar of strength for the rest of his life.

Japanese Whiskey Varieties

Today's hugely successful commercial market for Japanese whiskey, which shares many of the production methods and ingredients with Scots, owes much to Masataki Taketsuru's research. In 1918, this Japanese citizen traveled to Scotland with the intention of studying organic chemistry, but became interested in the production of Scotch whiskey. Similar to Scotch whiskey, Japanese whiskey also uses malted barley as a base for fermentation and aging in wooden barrels. However, the commonly used Mizunara oak, instead of French or American oak, gives Japanese whiskey its unique character of spices and citrus fruits. There are several whiskey companies in Japan, but the two most famous and widely available are Suntory and Nikka. Both produce blended and single malt whiskeys and blended malt whiskeys, with their main blended whiskeys being Suntory kakubin and Black Nikka Clear. There are also many special and limited editions available.

Whiskey Varieties

Whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage that is made from fermented grain mash. It is a popular drink that is enjoyed by many people all over the world. Whiskey is known for its unique taste and aroma, which is derived from the type of grain used, the distillation process, and the aging process. There are many different varieties of whiskey, each with its own unique flavor and character.

One of the most popular types of whiskey is Scotch whiskey, which is made in Scotland. Scotch whiskey is made from malted barley, water, and yeast, and is aged in oak barrels for at least three years. There are two main types of Scotch whiskey: single malt and blended. Single malt Scotch whiskey is made from 100% malted barley and is produced by a single distillery. Blended Scotch whiskey, on the other hand, is made by blending different single malt whiskies together.

Another popular type of whiskey is Irish whiskey, which is made in Ireland. Irish whiskey is made from a blend of malted and unmalted barley, as well as other grains such as corn and rye. It is aged in oak barrels for at least three years. Irish whiskey is known for its smooth and mellow flavor, which is derived from the triple distillation process that it undergoes.

Bourbon whiskey is a type of whiskey that is made in the United States. It is made from a mash that contains at least 51% corn, as well as other grains such as rye, wheat, and barley. Bourbon whiskey is aged in new, charred oak barrels for at least two years. It is known for its sweet and smoky flavor, which is derived from the charred oak barrels.

Canadian whiskey is a type of whiskey that is made in Canada. It is made from a blend of different grains, including corn, rye, wheat, and barley. Canadian whiskey is aged in oak barrels for at least three years. It is known for its smooth and light flavor, which is derived from the fact that it is typically blended with other spirits.

There are many famous brands of whiskey, each with its own unique flavor and character. Some of the most popular brands of Scotch whiskey include Glenlivet, Macallan, and Lagavulin. These brands are known for their rich and complex flavors, which are derived from the aging process and the type of oak barrels used.

Jameson, Bushmills, and Tullamore Dew are some of the most popular brands of Irish whiskey. These brands are known for their smooth and mellow flavors, which are derived from the triple distillation process that they undergo.

Jack Daniel's, Maker's Mark, and Jim Beam are some of the most popular brands of bourbon whiskey. These brands are known for their sweet and smoky flavors, which are derived from the charred oak barrels that they are aged in.

Canadian Club, Crown Royal, and Seagram's are some of the most popular brands of Canadian whiskey. These brands are known for their smooth and light flavors, which are derived from the fact that they are typically blended with other spirits.

Whiskey is a great drink for many reasons. It is a versatile drink that can be enjoyed on its own or mixed with other ingredients to create a variety of cocktails. Whiskey is also a great drink for socializing, as it is often associated with good times and good company. Additionally, whiskey has been shown to have some health benefits, such as reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke when consumed in moderation.
