Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Plenty of fruit notes - peach stands out in particular, ripe, vibrant and subtly floral. Then there's rich vanilla custard, peat smoke and a hint of nutmeg spice.

Palate: Oily and sweet, with peat smoke following swiftly afterwards. Light oak and developing fruit notes beneath.

Finish: Appealing oak lasts on the finish.

    No expert but this is awesome

    I do agree with the official MoM tasting notes, I'd add I even feel some sherry in this one but I'm not sure if there's any Sherry finish in this one or not.
    Very oily body, fruity and gently peated.. If like me, you are looking for a sweet (even sherried) and mildly to gently peated whisky, search no more and grab this one.
    It's costly, but it's really wonderful and pretty much on its own compared to other scotch whiskies -that, by the way, I like too- but that are now going to be compared and evaluated after this Yoichi 10yo.

    No expert

    I'd been told Japanese Whiskys were good, so i grabbed a bottle of this some time back, without ever having heard of Yoichi or Nikka. I remember being dissapointed it had a screw cap as opposed to a cork. It felt a little cheap, although clearly good quality, and at 10 years i really wasn't expecting much. It's now my go-to Whisky, and the Whisky i judge all others by. I love the powerful taste and long, long finish. None of my 21 or 18 year olds come close to this. Screw the dodgy cap i love it. Looking forward to trying Yoichi 15, and Yamazaki 18.

    Smooth and a wee bit smoky

    I bought a sample of my first Japanese whiskey. Loved it---will get a bottle. Smooth, a tiny bit smoky, and a bit sweet

    Very Nice

    I bought a bottle of this recently and very much enjoyed it for the smooth taste and excellent balance. its got its own well rounded character and makes a pleasant addition to any whisky collection. id recommend any whisky lover give it a spin.

    I have to admit this whisky is really interesting, pro tip, put a bit on your tongue and breathe. Do not swallow. It will evolve dramatically in your mouth. All in all, a fine balanced whisky. Go for it.

    this is how whisky should be

    I'm a fond whisky drinker. This is how whisky should taste like: smooth, yet with an enormous depth. It starts with the nose, which is complex and round. Take your time to nose it to the full extent. Then, the nip/sip. Its taste lingers and lingers, with delightfull fruitfulness, a smokeyness that doesn't overwhelm and a palate that is powerful but very ballanced. this is one of the best whisky's I've ever tasted.

    Well balanced Sweetness all around

    I agree with the previous reviewer. I spent more time nosing this fine whiskey than actually sipping. It has a beautiful bouquet that was initially a bit spicy like cinnamon, but quickly evolved to fruity and ended on the last sip smelling of sweet delicate honey. I prefer peatier scotches, but as far as fruity whiskeys this was delightful.

    Very very good.

    Always get this when I'm in Japan and if you don't happen to visit, def try this. The Miyagikyo is wonderful also. Very rich drams, wonderful on the palate and on the way down, but the nose, like any high end whisky, is the best part. Can nose Yoichi all day. (and if you visit japan and get to grab 180ml bottles, well then you can easily sniff whenever the desire grabs you.... And btw MOM, ask Nikka to stock you with
    those unless they are unrealistic to
    sell and ship. Delicious

    Ikebana whisky

    A mix of Honey sweet and fresh fruits and flowers (layers, more than mix...)with a very light and cloud of smoke on finish.
    Surprising, different and "under control" without beeing boring as could be a simple allrounder. All seems in place like an ikebana bouquet...
    That's right that i'm new in whisky in general and in japanese in particular,and maybe my enthousiasm is a bit influenced and overpowered by that. But much drams (even high scored by whisky writters) disapointed me. Surely because they were just not for my palate despite their excellence. This one is made for me... Jim Murray seems to be a little disapointed, compared to older versions of this malt, in his 2013 bible. But of course, i didn't knew those older expressions of Yoichi 10, my palate has less sharpened tastebuds than any whisky writter and this whisky is a charming, amazing and delicate one for me... A jewel for my taste !
