The stunning 1989 vintage Yoichi, this overwhelmingly put together, aged in bourbon, new oak and an Oloroso sherry butt. The results are very full bodied and utterly characteristic of a Japanese distillery with incredible pedigree. This is a cask strength release of 240 bottles, distilled from both lightly and heavily peated barley.

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Masataka Taketsuru, the "Father of Japanese Whisky," and a sake brewer’s son, never truly left his roots. He always tried to keep in mind the impact of the environment, and his father's thoughts on what makes the best spirit.
Yoichi Distillery was the first distillery of Nikka.
