Japanese Whisky Review: Yoichi Woody & Vanillic, Sherry & Sweet

Yoichi Woody & Vanillic / 55% / ¥3,300

Tasted neat, then with bottled water

  • Nose: grapes, dunnage warehouse, white pepper; a little campfire smoke and flowers
  • Taste: oak and pine sap, honeydew melon; peanut brittle, cornbread, and charred planks
  • Finish: pleasant, earl grey tea and fruit salad fades into vanilla domination

Yoichi Sherry & Sweet / 55% / ¥3,300

Tasted neat, then with bottled water

  • Nose: oloroso sherry, sulphur, plum, cigar smoke; burnt leaves, chalk dust, and sake lees
  • Taste: spice, beef jerky, stewed berries; cinnamon, dry leather, and beeswax
  • Finish: long classic sherry bomb finish, christmas cake
