Yoichi / Nikka

Yoichi Woody and Vanillic Review

Yoichi Woody and Vanillic Just before Christmas I was very lucky to receive two samples of ome amazing Japanese whisky from the friendly folks at Dekanta, this is the second of those.

This Yoichi Woody and Vanillic is part of the Nikka family of whiskies,and this bottling is normally only available from the distillery in Japan..

most of the Yoichi i've had in the past has had a real smoky hit, this one didn't much more wood spice, Hazelnuts and cadburys fruit and nut chocolate. really tasty stuff.

Ive really enjoyed these Japanese drams and will be looking out for more in the future.

Available to buy from Dekanta

Thanks again to Dekanta for the sample
