  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A rather young Yoichi, barely 13 years old, and it unfortunately feels a little.
    It's simple, not complex. Aeration does him good because it brings out the peat. Water too.
    87 without water.
    88 with.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Young wood, solvent.
      Lime, zest, aromatic herbs. Spices.
      Vanilla, scone. Slight smoke.
      Banana?

      It is young and it shows. With water the solvent becomes less present, and the fruit and aromatic herbs take over.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth it is quite simple.
      Citrus, apricot, pepper, ginger.
      Clove. Vanilla, wood, smoke and light peat.
      Dry grass.
      The water brings a dose of anise and gingerbread.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish on wood, citrus and vanilla.
      Smoke and peat are in the game. It's warming up.
