Yoichi Sherry Wood Finish 2018
A Japanese single malt bottling from Nikka's flagship distillery in Hokkaido. Nikka was founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, a former Suntory employee who had studied at the University of Glasgow, and later trained as a blender at the now lost Hazelburn distillery in Campbeltown. Taketsuru opened the Yoichi distillery in the same year as establishing the company, modelling its pot stills on the long-necked design of the Longmorn stills in Speyside.
Due to stock shortages in the Nikka warehouses brought about by unprecedented demand for Japanese whisky in the 21st century, the company discontinued all of its age-statements in 2015.
This 2018 limited edition was finished in sherry wood.
