    (TASTED BLIND)
    NOSE: Tobacco, whole black cardamom, leather, fresh fruit, (90p).
    TASTE: The arrival is smoky with lots of tobacco and whole black cardamom. Dry fruitiness, but then a rush of sweetness on the mid palate, then liqorice and fennel, then back to start. Very nice complexity. (90-91p).
    FINISH: Mild (89p).
    OVERALL: Lovely complexity. Total score 90 (91) points.

    The nose is the same as the normal Yoichi Single Malt NAS, no difference.

    In terms of taste, however, it is much more present, simply more intense. It doesn't taste like apple, rather with a noticeable trail of smoke.

    Nice.

    Don't know why it's rated so highly.
    I can still understand 88 points, but anything over 90 is laughable ...
