Japanese Whiskies

Japanese whiskies have received a lot of attention recently in Europe after a Yoichi won Whisky Magazine’s Best of the Best in 2001and Yoichi, Yamazaki and Hakushu were all bottled by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
Japan’s whisky industry has been in existence longer than many realise, being founded in 1924 with the building of Yamazaki Distillery. In 1934 Masataka Taketsuru founded the Nikka Distilling Company following his years of study in Scotland at Longmorn, Ben Nevis and Hazelburn distillery. After he had returned to Japan with his Scottish wife Rita, he built Yoichi distillery on the north island of Hokkaido in an area which he considered close to the natural environment of Scotland.
Japanese malt whisky is based on the Scotch model being double-distilled in pot stills. They have made certain innovations of their own however, like maturing their whiskies also in rare, slow-growing Japanese oak in the case of Suntory’s whiskies, and filling them into specially charred new oak in the case of Yoichi.
As Japan has far fewer distilleries and no tradition of trading casks as blenders do in Scotland, they often distil many different spirits within the same distillery.
Interestingly, Japanese whisky can act as an interesting comparison between Scotch and Bourbon, being a Scotch-style spirit matured in conditions with greater temperature variation closer to Kentucky. Trying a Japanese whisky blind at least once is now an essential experience…we challlenge you to pick Hakushu 12 out from a selection of Highland and Islay malts! Less…
