Togouchi Kiwami Japanese Whisky 40% 700ml
Togouchi Kiwami, which is the latest Chugoku Jozo release, is a limited edition exclusively reserved for the French market. This new blended whisky reveals its Scottish origins while claiming a strong Japanese character. Kiwami version is made from a selection of the best casks entering Togouchi Premium vatting mix. As its name suggests, Kiwami meaning "Height" in Japanese, this Togouchi will show you the excellence by being the equivalent in the world of wine of a "Prestige" vintage. With its nose both bright and elegant revealing fresh notes of grass and nuts, this blended whisky will lead you in the mouth in a gourmet trip with hazelnut, chocolate and honey aromas, ending on subtle spicy notes of pepper and nutmeg. Togouchi whiskies specificity is to be aged, blended and diluted in Japan. Scotch whisky barrels aging is held in a unique location : a 361 meters long tunnel dug in 1970 that offers ideal maturation conditions (constant temperature of 14°C and 80% humidity). Part of their Japanese character is transmitted by the soil through the source of water used for reducing the alcohol content which is drawn from the heart of Sandankyo Nature Park unspoilt mountains.
