Rich amber color. Luscious red fruits, licorice, honey, and cardamom in the nose. Deeper flavors on the palate, with very rich mouthfeel and hints of light smoke. Luxurious finish. Nice to be tasting some Japanese whisky again after a dry spell in California!

Creamy, oaky vanilla. Full bodied with a few crisp edges. Succulent.

Pale copper color. Somewhat smoky, toasted caramel, malt, barley, orange zest, raisins. On the palate, round mouthfeel with very subtle hints of iodine, sea spray, and wet grass from Yoichi malt. Very, very nice blended malt!

If given a choice the 15yr Yoishi is deeper and more complex but there ain't nothing wrong with the 21yr

Trop boisé pour moi. Impression de "croquer la planche"... Je préfère le Hibiki
