“This dram resembles coffey due to the thinness of its frame. It's another addition to the chain of chocolate - lemon palate whiskys. Nothing earth-shaking. A pleasant whisky.” Read more

“I am not a huge fan of NAS whiskies. With few notable exceptions, you are simply paying more to get less. After Nikka discontinued all Single Malts with age statement, I thought this Yoichi would be a big disappointment. Well, I was wrong…” Read more

“Apricot
Nikka has quite a few blends on the market, one more easily obtainable than the other. But this one is easily found and quite affordable. Around 30 to 40 EUR in my neck of the woods. It's a blend that contains both Yoichi and Miyagikyo…” Read more
