It tastes like a Canadian Mountie and a Glasgow girl met at a distant train station for a kiss.

Chugoku Jozo started in 1918 as a distributor of Sake and traditional Japanese liquors. They specialized in all the stuff that happens after distillation, meaning that they purchased raw, young spirit from distillers and then mixed, aged, bottled, and distributed it for themselves. By 1963 they were ready to start brewing their own Sake and released the first finished, aged product in 1967. Today they curate, produce, age, and package a variety of Sakes, Wines, and Whiskies under several brands, including Togouchi.

The Togouchi line of Whiskies gets it’s name from the town in which it is aged — or more specifically, the unused train station tunnel that has been repurposed into a Whisky aging warehouse. Togouchi 12 Year Old is a blended Whisky of approximately 40% Scottish Single Malt and 60% grain spirit from Canada that has slept in that abandoned train tunnel for a dozen years. So the spirit flowed from Canada and Scotland, but it was born and raised in Japan.

Japan is the second biggest producer of single malt Whisky in the world. Much to general surprise.

Ratings & Reviews
Barry
Barry,
Great blend of peat and fruit... nice sweet up front without any dishonorable back end. Very good overall
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, 12 year old Japanese blended whisky, with a gentle death.
Richard
Richard,
Sweet, spun sugar, vanilla, really quite good
Vic
Vic,
Nice scotch! Usually not big on scotch but this was a refreshing surprise. Definitely a good choice to fill out your bar.
Juan
Juan,
Too peaty for my taste. Would not purchase for my bar.
Vicky
Vicky,
Distinctly fresh with sharp high notes and a hint of peat. A good way to change things up and wake up the taste buds.
Katherine
Katherine,
More peaty than smokey to me. If you like a bit of peat, this will be a favorite.
Joseph
Joseph,
Nice light smokiness
Logan
Logan,
I was expecting loads of smoke, and although it does come through as a key player, it is much more balanced than I was expecting. A great choice for someone that likes the smokiness, but also doesn't want to get punched in the face by it.
Deja
Deja,
Very good! Just the right amount of smoky and sweet.
Samuel
Samuel,
The Togouchi is a great example of all the things I like about Japanese whiskeys, and with a really nice finish.
