Nikka Whisky has unveiled the first releases from the “Nikka Discovery” series: Single Malt Yoichi Non-Peated and Single Malt Miyagikyo Peated. Limited editions of The Nikka Discovery will be launched over the next three years in anticipation of Nikka Whisky’s 90th anniversary in 2024. Each year will focus on a different component of the whisky-making process that Nikka has practiced since 1934, giving an insider look at the variety of experiments within Nikka’s two distilleries.
Single Malt Yoichi Non-Peated (47% ABV) is comprised solely of unpeated malts. The result is a balance of bright fruitiness and rich mouthfeel, along with its distinctive smokiness generated by coal-fired distillation.
