Single Malt Whisky Reviews from Australia

Yoichi 20yr old. Fantastic stuff and almost impossible to find now at a reasonable price.


Eye: Burnt gold

Nose: Heavy raspberry compote. Very floral. Heavy refined sherry influence. Hints of coal. Leathery.

Palate: Sweet raspberry. Jelly babies.

Finish: Espresso and sherry mix with a light smoke and gorgeous raspberry malt sweetness. Leathery tobacco notes come through at the end.


Distillery: Yoichi
Age: 20yr's Old
Region: Japan
ABV: 52%

Japanese whisky is simply brilliant, and this Yoichi only further confirms my thoughts on this. Do try it if you get the chance. You won't regret it.
