Yoichi Non Age

Yoichi Non Age

Yoichi Non Age Bottling Note

A no age statement single malt produced by the Yoichi Distillery, the first distillery established by Nikka in 1934. Plenty of fruit notes with a good helping of peat at its core.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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

Palate: 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.

Good but Nikka have more in stock

I tried the 50 cl NAS. It's a nice dram.

Interesting, but delicate

I started by sipping the Yoichi neat. Its nose had a nice smoky peat to it with a touch of citrus sweets and what I would call pine. The smell stayed with me just long enough, but not so long as to be overwhelming. As I sipped it, it was thin with a touch of salt. However, the body hinted at more. I tossed an ice cube into it and the peat, disappointingly, disappeared entirely, but the fruit flavors with a touch of cherry and citrus and a nice round sweetness came out.

I would pay the price it was introduced at in a heartbeat, but as its price has increased for a smaller bottle I am hesitant to put a bottle into my liquor cabinet.


Final Note: I am doing the 2015 advent calendar. As a result, I get one drink at it to decide if I like it enough to buy more. Sometimes I need to drink something three or four times to make up my mind. Thus, my rating is based on a one-time drink experience.
