Togouchi Whisky Pure Malt 40% 700ml
A new creation from Chugoku Jozo, Togouchi Pure Malt is a blend of single malts imported from different distilleries, then aged, blended and bottled in Japan.
Very slightly peaty, this whisky reveals a pleasantly greedy nose with notes of vanilla, chocolate, ripe apricot to which aromas of fresh cream are added to the palate while the fine peat asserts itself. On the finish, the bitter cocoa and hazelnut notes accompany the slowly disappearing peat.
Togouchi Pure Malt surprises with its strong character inherited from the meticulous selection of Sherry and Bourbon casks in which the single malts have been aged between 3 and 9 years.
Bottling company for Togouchi Blended Whisky. Chugoku Jozo was founded near the city of Hiroshima. The Distillery produces since 1918 fruit liqueurs, sake and shochu under the brands Dharma and Songshan, a long aged shochu. In 1990 Chugoku Jozo started blending whiskeys under the brand Togouchi. Chugoku Jozo Distillery does not distill whisky but imports it already distilled, directly from Scotland for malt whisky and from Canada for grain whisky. Only the operations of aging and blending are performed by Chugoku Jozo master blenders.
