Togouchi 18 Year Old
Togouchi is matured in a unique setting, within a 361 meter long tunnel that dates back to 1970. This offers a constant temperature of 14°C and 80% humidity for perfect aging. Chugoko Jozo's master blender adds a special Japanese touch to the process by sourcing the malt and grain following scrupulous criteria and personally taking care of the maturation and blending process himself.
Hiroshima-based distiller Chugoku Jozo presents Togouchi 18 Year Old, a well thought-out blend of cereals with a rounded texture and complexity, similar in profile to a Lowlands Scotch whisky.
The nose is smooth with hints of peach and pear, the palate is powerful and balanced with notes of white pepper, malted cereals and violet, while the finish is dry and lingering revealing tones of pine nuts and sunflower seeds.
