Close to Hiroshima, Chugoku Jozo has been producing a range of liquors, sakes and shochus for almost a century, with their first blended whisky being released in 1990.
The raw materials are carefully selected by the Master Blender, following scrupulous criteria and attention to detail. He then personally takes care of the maturation and blending processes, adding his own special Japanese touch.
Maturation takes place within a unique setting - a 361 metre long tunnel dating back to 1970, offering a constant temperature of 14C and 80% humidity - the perfect ageing conditions.
Togouchi 18 year old is similar to Scottish Lowland whisky, famed for its floral and malted notes. A rounded texture and complex aromatic profile express themselves through intense fruity and woody notes.
Produced from 60% grain and 40% malt whisky and tunnel-matured for 18 years.
Nose: smooth aromas of peach and pear
Palate: a powerful and balanced blend of white pepper, malted cereals and violets
Finish: dry and lingering notes of pine nuts and sunflower seeds
