About Nikka Discovery Yoichi 2021 Non-Peated Single Malt Japanese Whisky

Nikka has decided to spice things up a little. While waiting for their age statement stock to be replenished and their finest expressions to be released, they decided to showcase all of the experiments the distillery has made over the years. In the 2021 Mikka Discovery series, they presented two well-known single malts, Miyagikyo and Yoichi, in a different expression than usual. The main theme of the 2021 Mikka Discovery series is peat switcheroo. The typically gentle Miyagikyo was released in a peated version, and traditionally bold and intense Yoichi that was reminiscent of Scottish whiskies of the Island of Skye has suddenly found itself with no peat, transforming into a much finer, softer form. While losing some of its edge, this whiskey has maintained a rich body and a solid mouthful that make it worthy of the name Yoichi. This non-peated single malt is a light and joyous floral whiskey that will impress you with its delicateness. Both versions were released in 20.000 bottles only.

On the nose, there is an initial alcohol aroma that quickly disappears to give place to a very rich base of oat flakes, tropical fruits, coriander, dill, chervil, and fresh grass. The palette is intense with flavors of oatmeal, manuka honey, fruits, wood, and even some smoke. This whisky is a youngster, a little bit rough around the edges but develops a great fruity flavor profile and an even better finish.
