Scotch Malt Whisky Society Yoichi, 116.1
Single Malt - Japan - 56.60%
8 A whole sequence of flavours emerges in this vintage. These are flavours I have found before in Nikka whiskies, but they have not been especially evident elsewhere in this flight.

Yoichi 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
8 This is a wonderful whisky at 10 Years Old. I love the almost shocking hit of heavy peating.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Yoichi 10 Years Old, Single Cask
Single Malt - Japan - 59.90%
9 A terrific whisky, beautifully rounded, with lots of everything.

Yoichi 12 Years Old, Peaty and Salty
Single Malt - Japan - 55.00%
8 An interesting combination of fruit and peat. They don't mingle, they keep playing hide and seek. More complexity than it appears. Water makes it caressing.

Yoichi 12 Years Old, Woody and Vanillic
Single Malt - Japan - 55.00%
8 Soft and smooth whisky which seems tired. Not particularly exciting.

Yoichi 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 45.00%
8 Creamier than the 10 Years Old, but that softens the peatiness. Between these two, I preferred the peatier ten.

Yoichi 1985, Cask No. 250216
Single Malt - Japan - 58.00%
7 A sharp character, full of life. Needs water to tame the alcohol. For an outdoor invigorating crisp morning walk.

Yoichi 1986 22 Years Old Heavily Peated
Single Malt - Japan - 59.00%
8 Refined,bold but elegant. Buy one.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Yoichi 1991, Cask No 129504
Single Malt - Japan - 64.00%
8 Another outdoor drink combining estery elegancy and phenolic pungency. High strength must be monitored with water.

Yoichi 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 52.00%

Yoichi Single Cask, 1986
Single Malt - Japan - 61.30%
7 The typical fruitiness of the Yoichi whiskies, but less peat than I remember.

Yoichi Single Cask, 1989
Single Malt - Japan - 60.80%
7 Again, very fruity, but lacking in other flavours.

Yoichi Single Cask, 1990
Single Malt - Japan - 61.50%
7 A big whisky, with some of the smokiness I remember.

Yoichi Single Malt
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
8 Not Yoichi at its most full-blooded and a little gawky but worth a look.

Yoichi Single Malt
Single Malt - Japan - 55.00%
8 Powerful yet elegant. A yokozuna of malt whisky.
