Color
Old gold
Nose

Nez assez costaud. Ça envoie.

Poire, boisé. Assez difficile.

Léger cuir, léger camphre.

Le nez n'est pas le plus sexy des Yoichi jusqu'à la.

Taste

En bouche, c'est bien mieux.

De la confiture de fruit rouge, du bois très noble.

Un peu de camphre toujours. Du poivre noir

Finish

Une finale super sur la cire, le sherry, la cerise, le bois. Interminable.

Comments

C'est superbe en bouche. Le nez plus fort et difficile.

La bouteille est probablement ouverte depuis un moment, je suis surpris de n'y avoir trouvé aucune fumée ou tourbe. A regoûter.

Very fresh and fruity. Becomes more salty with time. Butter. Freshly cut grass

Taste

Bitter and spicy. Herbal. Oranges. A tad oaky. 

Finish

Citrus. Buttery, almost creamy and quite long finish.

Old gold
Nose

Ecorce de bois, sciure, légère fumée (feu de bois), poivre, gingembre. C’est vraiment incisif, mais très agréable. Quelques odeurs plus douces : pelure de pomme, et muscade aussi. A l’aération, ça devient assez monstrueux, toujours sur ce bois fumé ou cette fumée de bois (?), des braises chaudes, des vêtements imprégnés par de la fumée et quelques touches médicinales

Taste

Dans la continuité du nez : boisé extrême mais comme aucun autre. Assez difficile à mettre des mots dessus. Une tourbe terreuse, limite pétrolée est également bien présente ainsi que des clous de girofle, du poivre noir. Cette bouche est sèche à souhait mais reste étonnement équilibrée. Vraiment intense.

Finish

Très longue, clou de girofle, poivre, bois fumé.

Comments

Une expérience. Un whisky à part. Un monstre boisé/fumé très équilibré.

Amontillad
Nose

Très boisé (mais le bon boisé), vanille, tourbe, fumée (carné), bacon, et l'orange.

Taste

Riche et bestial, on retrouve la tourbe, la fumée, du tabac. Il y a aussi une attaque sucrée vanillée. Et l'orange!

Finish

Très longue, fraiche (menthol), sweet! 

Comments

Les saveurs du bois (fût) de chez Yoichi sont jute un régale.

This is a monster of oak, very powerful and complex, and yet very tight and balanced, swim well too. I like it better than those well rated 1988 bottles. This bottle is more "japanish" if you know what I mean. Sadly it has 148 bottles only, long gone...
