A powerful cask-strength 20-year-old single malt from the Yoichi distillery that previously bested some very high-profile Scottish malts at a blind tasting in 2003 and received 95 points in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Rich and savoury, with liquorice, bacon fat and tempting peatiness.
Bigger and fruitier than the nose would suggest, with the peat blending beautifully with rich dark chocolate. Mouthcoating and satisfying.
Complex, with the peat acting as a counterpoint to all that richness.
A big-hearted whisky, that is by turn sweet and savoury. Complex and classy.
Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Amazingly original at first nosing, starting on old kelp, oysters, fishmonger’s… Also tar, diesel oil, well hung pheasant. All that settles down then and we get more ‘regular’ nuts, cigar box, leather, caramel crème and vanilla – and let’s not forget the spices (curry, lots of cinnamon)… A fantastic and unusual profile.
Bold, ample, spicy attack, with a great sourness (small apples, grape skin). Gets quite acrid but that’s great in this context. Superb sharpness. Develops on ‘genuine’ liquorice, something varnishy, tea, notes of Fino (flor, old walnuts). Hints of kiwi and green apples. Beautiful and highly original. Long finish mostly on fresh apples and cinnamon… I love it, I think it’s a masterpiece.

What a great dram. Just wonderful.
Amazing dram! Explodes on the tongue. Sweet, fruity with a touch of cinnamon but isn't overpowering. This dram does have a blinding kick of alcohol at the back of the throat. One of the most exciting whiskies out there.
japanese whisky @ its brilliant best...a magnificent drop...a masterpice in the art of whisky making...
