Togouchi 12 Years Old is a peated blend mingled to a lovely chocolate sweetness and vanilla notes. The refreshing trail of greenery and lemon is blissful. The bottle too is quite original and invites to one of Pascal's incredible Pensees (thoughts), also written in Japanese.

Togouchi whisky is produced by the Chugoku Jozo distillery. Founded in 1918 at the heart of a mountainous region, nor far from Hiroshima, Chugoku Jozo first produced sake and shochu and then turned to whisky ageing and blending when it developed into the Empire of the Rising Sun.

Malt and grain whiskies entering the composition of Togouchi come from Canada and Scotland. The distillery operates the ageing, blending and bottling processes in Japan.


The Togouchi range is aged in a unique area, at the heart of the mountainous region of West Chugoku. Casks are stocked in a 387 meters long tunnel, carved in the 1970’s. The interior stays at a steady temperature of 14°C all year long, making that tunnel an ideal location to age whiskies. Fresh spring water fetched at the heart of the mountains of the Sandankyo natural park is used to dilute whisky for the bottling.


The history of Japanese whisky starts with Masataka Taketsuru, who spent two years in Scotland after World War II to learn the art of distilling. On his return, Shijiro Torii, founder of Suntory, relies on his knowledge to build the Yamazaki distillery in 1924. Taketsuru takes off and establishes his own company, Nikka. Whisky production really boomed after the Second World War, when the Japanese started to enjoy whisky.

togouchi 12 ans

Excellent whisky qui éclate dans la bouche mais reste limpide et profond. Il n'agresse pas et reste léger pour ce qui est du fumé. A recommandez vivement seul ou accompagné d'un morceau de chocolat. J'en suis très agréablement surpris pour un 12 ans. Il est excellent

    Colour: pure gold.

    Nose:  fresh and spicy notes on the first hit, with a touch of lemon. Develops onto smoky, peaty notes.

    Palate:  fresh and dry. The spicy notes of lemon refresh the palate.

    Finish:  spicy notes of lemon and peat smoke.
