One response to “The Complexity, Harmony, and Great Depth of Character of Japanese Whisky”

    Hi Tod. Nice piece. Couple of things. Whisky the drink – as far as we know – was only introduced in Japan mid-1800s. There’s some evidence to being distilled before 1924, but only just. The first distillery was Yamazaki (not Yoichi), established 1923. It brought out its first whisky in 1929. Yoichi was founded in 1934. The second world war was good to both Suntory and Nikka, bringing lots of business.
