Ferns & Blossoms
Due to a shortage of Japanese whisky, Nikka withdrew all age statement off the market. Hence Yoichi and Miyagikyo are now released as NAS bottlings. This bottle has been around for a while and is the predecessor to today’s bottlings that appear at 45% in 70cl bottles as of the end of 2015.
The rather closed nose offers up some yellow fruit (banana, mirabelles and citrus), but also the typical forest scents I have come to associate with Yoichi. Think ferns, decomposing wood and blossoms. Then a good dollop of honey and a little bit of peat. It has some Turkish Delight, which comes a bit as a surprise. I don’t think I have discovered that in a Japanese whisky before.
Pity, but the body really leaves a lot to be desired. This is watery, just shy of oily. It could do with a little more. On the palate it is all about honey and spices, but with a nice uppercut of sweet peat, delivering some smoke. Loads of vegetal notes like roots. Midpalate, the oak does turn it a tad bitter;
That bitterness is continued in the rather short finish, making that the least interesting part of this dram.
I fear my expectations for this Japanese single malt were too high, for I am left slightly disappointed.

n: citrussy and fragrant. a little nutty too. typical japanese profile with fern and
    moss in the background. not very complex but lively and fresh with a rather
    pleasant harmony.
t:  again citrussy and it has a nice spicyness. nuts again and perhaps a little
    hint of smoke.
f:  medium, getting much dryer.
84/100

Color
Amber
Nose

Citrus-flavoured boiled sweets, fresh baking aromas from brown bread and vanilla spice.

Taste

Sweet entry, fragrant, perfumed citrus. Peat comes through with a touch of smoke and a suggestion of coastal character, surrounded by orange peel and cherry.

Finish

Medium length, with a hint of salty breeze lasting, a hallmark of the distillery.

Nose

Fresh fruits, citrusy, bananas, coming very shy

Taste

Sweet and oaky, touches of citrus fruits, oily and smooth.

Finish

Medium short with a tad of bitterness.

Comments

Starts great but then looses in the end. Too bad, it's okayish but not a big hit.
