  4. franpincoffee scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior


    The combination of Yoichi peated spirit and an ex-bourbon cask works magnificently here. The nose is intense and smoky with notes of virgin oak, vanilla, and dark chocolate. The taste is chewy, intense, and complex with a mouth-puckering smoke that builds slowly to a fiery pepper note…then lingers to reveal vanilla, toasted oak, and coconut as the spice fades. Those notes carry over well into the finish, which literally lasts for minutes. Mouth-watering and great!
