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.
Togouchi whiskies are specific in that they are only aged, blended, diluted in Japan and highlight the art of blending for the future productions of the Sakurao distillery. The aging of whisky casks imported from Scotland and Canada takes place in a unique site, a tunnel 361m long and dug in 1970 offering ideal conditions for maturation. Part of their Japanese character is transmitted by the terroir through the spring water used for the reduction of the alcoholic volume which is drawn from the heart of the preserved mountains of the Sandankyo natural park.
