Nikka Yoichi - 2019

15 Years Old
45% ABV
$120

This is from Nikka's first distillery and was crafted using traditional distilling methods. The pot stills are still heated using a direct fire coal method instead of steam. This is said to create a more oily, rich flavor profile. It is aged for 15 years in a combination of American oak, sherry butt and Mizunara barrels.

We tasted Nikka Yoichi - 2019 at Meeting No. 87 on December 19, 2019. We rated it very highly at 3.94 out of 5. Nikka Yoichi - 2019 ranks 3rd overall in Japanese Whisky. At a street price of $120, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.
