Tasting Notes

"On the nose, thick caramel, chocolate orange, and juicy tangerine come first. The palate lets you know this is a Yoichi whisky with the earthy, oaky intensity rising through the pleasant rum sweetness. Finishing off, bitter chocolate, salty caramel, and gentle smoke all work together to deliver a long, full finish."
