Yoichi 15 Bottling Note

A delicious single malt from the Yoichi distillery, founded by Masataka Taketsuru in 1934. Taketsuru deemed the terroir to be perfect for whisky production, as this 15 year old will testify.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is gentle and creamy with light fruits and a little nutty development. The palate is quite sweet with notes of subdued peat, winter spice and a nutty note. The finish is long and beautifully bittersweet.

Yoichi 15 Year Old Reviews

Get some luck on your side and try this

Brilliant whisky. Was fortunate to try it at a restaurant that still has it. Has a caramel and smoky smell and taste. Just as good or even better than the Taketsuru 17.

Nikka Yoichi 15 yr

One of, if not the best whisky I have ever had. The nose gives you notice that there is something special going on there... complex and smoky.
The palate reveals the complexity of the flavors, and supported nicely by the smokiness. The smoke is not overpowering, but plays a really nice sidenote adding to the complexity of the flavor. The mouthfeel is perfect, right where I like it to be. It has a smoothness that belies the complexity of the taste...

Overall, I am extremely pleased with this bottle and wish I had been able to pick up a 2nd bottle... they sold out in less than 2 days in my neck of the woods.

Truly amazing

Fantastic combination of coffee, peat and that characteristic Japanese toffee/caramel tone.

too expensive

very smooth whiskey with a sweet taste. has no burn with a peaty finish. no match for old pulteney 21 and Yoichi 15 cost more money

Not bad but has a weak finish

First taste of Japanese Whisky.

Understated at first. A sweetish almost mild maple scent. A couple of drops of water brings out peat sherry fruit maybe apricot and a soft nutty flavour. long sweet after taste.

Favourite of all

Let me first tell you that I'm either a whisky expert or a journalist. But simply a whisky consumer. I'd never heard of any Japanese whiskys before and I impulse bought a bottle. I did expect much cause of it's price and the general quality reputation for Japanese products. The first nip was euphoric! Complex, deep and sweet taste, exceptional smoke balance. Avery good composition, this is my favourite of all whiskys.

my new Yamazaki 18

When i was first introduced to the Yamazaki 18 it was $99 a bottle. With it around $225 I can no longer keep it in circulation. This bottle from Yoichi is every bit as good as the Yamazaki 18. Exceptional.

Good but not yummie

Had this whisky last night. It had some fruit, slightly peated and the wood was very dominante. Good for a dram.

The only Whisky better than this, in my opinion, is the 20 year old but that's twice the price and only slightly better. I don't drink Whisky much so for me to spend £80 on a bottle, it has to be something special.

The thing about yoichi is its batch variation,ive had distinctly average malts but ive also had some stunners. Right now ive got a bottle of this open which is one of the best ive had; subtle nose with a light splash of sherry, sweet start to the mouth and very fruity. Handful of nuts appear as it all goes savoury and good quality smoke wafts in (very light and quality cigar). Just when you think its done the sweetness makes a reprieve and last long with a lovely kiss of sherry. No sulphur in sight. No chill filtering and maybe 46-48% and this would be remarkable.
