Non Age Statement
This release by Nikka is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the wedding (click here for more info) of Nikka founder Masataka Taketsuru to Rita Cowan. Nikka has just launched a brand new Apple Brandy Wood Finish editions of their Yoichi and Miyagikyo Single Malts🍎🍏 . For the Miyagikyo Apple Brandy Wood Finish, see this link. Don’t forget to complete this set! 😉
According to Nikka the Yoichi is finished in an ex-apple brandy cask to harmonize a mellow sweetness with a deep peatiness. On the nose there’s a sweet aroma of apple compote alongside maltiness, then the palate brings savory sweetness of baked sweets like apple pie and fruit cask. The finish closes with slight peat and lasting malt sweetness. For more info, see the link here.
