Yoichi Single Malt brings a refined, smoky Lowland style to Japan.

Masataka Taketsuru was the son of a Sake producer. As a young man, he was sent to Scotland to learn the secrets of Whisky. He did … but he also learned about love. He met Rita Cowen—a Scottish lass whom he married and took back to Japan with him. He remained employed by other spirits makers for a few years, but Rita encouraged him to step out on his own. In 1934, he founded Yoichi Distillery and grows it to great success. Yoichi Distillery lies in southern Hokkaido and is surrounded on three sides surrounded by mountains, a terrain much similar to the one Taketsuru found in Scotland. Yoichi possesses its own cooperage and is particularly careful when selecting its hogshead barrels, which are made on-site using new oak.

The Yoichi Distillery now produces a wide range of Whiskies, but the Yoichi line still forms the heart and soul of the company. Demand for their exceptional spirits is high, and the simply named — almost Zen-like — Yoichi Single Malt is designed to help fill the need. This fine Japanese Whisky is comprised of their signature single malt spirits from a range of ages, blended to deliver a refined dram with mellow smokiness and an almost Lowland-style fruity, almost maritime character.

Ratings & Reviews
Thomas
Thomas,
Loved the smoky, wood barrel flavor that dances around the fruity and floral notes of this excellently crafted whiskey
 
Dat
Dat,
I would give this bottle a generous rating of an 8.0 I could definitely smell the peat, and there is very strong smoke presence, but there is something lacking. Sure, there is a tiny hint of candied honey and there is a slight salty flavor in the after taste, especially around the lips, but the fruitiness escapes me. If you like peat, this one may be up your alley. The finish is medium and not very complex.

Keith,
My favorite of the Japanese whiskeys. I would have guessed this was an Islay scotch. Rich flavor of smoke, seaweed and oak. New go-to Japanese whiskey.

Smokey earthy goodness with a dash of sweetness that is smooth and wonderful.
