Made using high quality rice that has been lightly milled to remove 40% of the rice's outer layer. Lighter in style than other sake, this has a crisp, dry and easy to drink style. A discrete nose with lime, lemon and straw. Dry palate with hints of citrus
Serve chilled or warm. Harmonious balance between the sweet approach & dry finish. Mouth coating yet never cloying: plum with marzipan and white flowers. Dried fruit develops as it's warmed. Clean, fresh, fragrant and in bottles that are much too small.
The base distillate comes through the "Coffey Still", a traditional continuous still which produces Nikka's whiskies, giving a silky texture and rich body. Botanicals include Japanese citrus such as Yuzu, Kabosu, Amanatsu, Apple and Sansho pepper.

A fine introduction to the Yoichi range, this no age statement bottling offers a distinctly fruit forward expression, while retaining the salty coastal influence of the distillery. A single malt which balances pleasure and personality, it can just as well be enjoyed before or after a meal.
The Nikka Coffey Malt is the result of a unique distillation process in Coffey type column stills, which are normally used for grain whisky production. This rare 100% malt bottling offers a surprisingly rich texture.
