  1. wisekycourse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    nectar!
    fruits in stewed caramel, vanilla, spices, herbs with some menthol and gentian, some dry wood, some toffee.

  2. ctu scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Wonderful ratios of sweet fruits, peat, spices and sour citruses. Professional work from Japan.
    • Nose
      Candied orange peel, mango, salted caramel, coconut, peat and earth.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Peaty, fruity. Chocolate, strawberry, menthol and lime. Touch of tobacco and ash.
    • Finish
      Long. Peat and tobacco.

  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Reminds me of a sweet, young, juicy Caol Ila whih is no bad thing.

    A very good whisky, the last Yoichi 20 year I had was also a good one.

    With water the peat is more pronounced on the nose but more citrus and cream is in the mix. The palate is even juicier with the same fruitiness.

    Good sweet lingering finish.

    This has just the right amount of sherry and peat, lovely stuff.
    • Nose
      Quite prickly on orange sherbet, candied fruits, caramel wafers, salted caramel, it gets less aggressive after a few minutes . After a while there are some lovely Turkish delight  notes.
    • Taste
      That has some power and massive peat that I was not expecting and the orange that the nose promised is there with some fudge.

      My initial impression is very good, the peat is strong but there is this lovely fruitiness mixed in with it

      Neat this is lip smacking,with Turkish delight still there, milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet & peaty.

    A cask from winning 1991 vintage, you can't go wrong with it!

  6. markjedi1 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The best Yoichi that I have tried so far. And I know
    where a bottle can still be had for around 200 EUR. Think I will grab it.
    • Nose
      The prickly nose contains peat and silt, but it is the
      sweetness that is victorious here. <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Oranges
      and lemon, stone fruits (apricots and even some mango) and then some vanilla
      and earth. But also roasted almonds and sweet & sour sauce!
      Caramel. Chocolate. Coconut. It keeps developing.
      Complex little animal.
    • Taste
      Fiery and creamy on the palate with a big kick from
      both the spices and the high alcohol percentage. The citrus from the nose is joined by grapefruit. Some menthol. Then the
      peat returns. It goes up and down. The second sip
      offers nuts and chocolate. What a balance.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warm and elegant.

  8. Willie JJ scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful. Another Japanese gem.
    • Nose
      Massively concentrated fruit compote. Tannins, bog myrtle, slight caramel, smoky jam.
    • Taste
      Incredible intensity, full on tobacco spread with strawberry jam. Sugar sparkles and a little barbecue sauce with water.
    • Finish
      Chewing tobacco that makes the mouth water forever. Barley sugared magic.
