Noted Japanese distiller Nikka Whisky and U.S. importer Anchor Distilling are introducing two new single malts. Yoichi and Miyagikyo are both non-age statement whiskies distilled from 100% malted barley, and each reflects the unique characters of the respective distilleries located on different islands.
Yoichi Single Malt is comprised of portions of heavily peated malt aged in New American Oak, Sherry Casks and a variety of casks coopered in the Nikka cooperage’s. Miyagikyo Single Malt is slightly peated with Sherry Cask influence. Both at 90 proof.
