  5. lviz scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    The bourbon wood finish was just an average good Yoichi, but the rum cask works well! Nice balance between the sweet rum influence and the malts own character. You can't feel the alcohol, but there is some nice spices, lemon skin , ginger, nutmeg , yelow fruits in the background. A nice Yoichi but the price is to high imho.

  6. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Oh, don't rush ...
    With all my "not love" for rum extracts and the finish - there is something to pant over ...
    It is absolutely necessary to let "breathe out" - then the incomprehensible alcoholic rum edging leaves ...
    Lollipops, vanilla and spices in the nose, absolutely in tune with the taste. But the finish clearly makes it clear the presence of rum, and if you don't like it as much as I do, then this is a significant minus ...
    But, for taste and color - there are no comrades.

  8. Highlander65 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Tasted together with his little brother Miyagikyo, it is just slightly less sweet and fruity than the latter. The peaking is almost imperceptible. Very elegant and stately.
