Whisky Reviews for Yoichi 10-year-old
63 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.99 points
- The 10YO whisky is a sweet, a little bit peaty, salty, with black pepper and chocolate notes in the palate. The finish is a long, sweet, spicy, dry and lightly peaty. It’s an one of my favourite 10YO whiskies.
- Nice 10 from Japan. Will probably be my last bottle - the price has risen abnormally! Shock!!!
Initially sweet fruit notes, minimal smoke that turns into heather smoke. Floral tones and notes of plum are recognizable.
Sweet floral fruit notes with heather and plums. A couple of cherries flash.
Heather, plums, a little spice.
Medium to long and very pleasant. No bitterness.
- Calm and unhurried whisky, takes time to unfold, complex, taste plays the main role here - aroma and finish only create a background, frame it.
Open, dry, delicate woody notes, lemon and orange peel, coated tablets, grain, light animal shades, some flowers and fresh grass, mineral tones - gypsum, drying plaster;
Dense, rich, tart oak, grain, nuts, leather goods, lemon peel, coated tablets, sweet caramel notes, ginger, pepper wave, more grain in development, tablet shades, strong creamy sweetness appears, old leather goods, lacquer shades, industrial mineral motives, in general, adds strongly.
Spicy, warming, oak, lemon zest, grain, a little ginger, leather goods.
- I absolutely loved this Japanese whisky and would be excited to have it again if money wasn't a concern. Very different to most of the other Japanese I've had. Scoring highly because its rare to find a whisky like this at the price I drank it at! And, it was so good.
Grated orange peel, light cookie dough, a little vanilla sugar. Red Apple. Rose petals. Garden soil, lemon thyme.
Sweetish, spicy. Yellow apples, almonds, some pepper. A trace of wood ash.
- The last dram from the bottle:
A fine-bitter woody smell comes from the glass - cedar and sandalwood. Add incense sticks and add a slightly smoky note. Nougat, dark and bitter forest honey, accompanied by the abrasion of orange peel. There is also dark, heavy fruit - plums, overripe sweet cherries and blueberries. But also a hint of banana. Menthol I no longer perceive. For freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon and a little cloves. A touch of brown sugar and marzipan.
From the opening to the last swallow, the initially very strong menthol smell in the nose became weaker, developing more strongly into dark fruits. Consistent were the wood notes and a light incense smoke.
In the mouth hardly changes to the previous tasting - cool-mentholiger approach, with some eucalyptus tingling on the tongue. Sweet notes of red fruits and Pithaya. Add to that leather and soft smoke, vanilla in honey and real nougat. Hazelnuts and some milk chocolate, a little cinnamon.
Long, mentholig, on the mouth a little bit espresso-bitter, altogether quite dry in the mouth. After some time, hazelnuts remain in the throat, some menthol on the tongue.
A great malt that gains time and oxidation in the bottle. From starting 84 points to 88 for the last Dram. This makes an average of 86 points
