Quantity limited to 1 bottle(s) by client.

Our experts reviews

Twice voted best single malt in the world since 2000, Yoichi belongs to the very closed group of elite distilleries such as Ardbeg, Yamazaki, Lagavulin, Macallan and Laphroaig. The legendary “Heavy Peaty” versions reveal a rich peatiness with smoky, liquoricey, vegetal flavours. Within the classic range, the Yoichi 15 year old offers the perfect balance between smoky notes of cold tobacco and maturation predominately in sherry casks. Also characterised by ripe fruit, it is exclusively imported and distributed in France by La Maison du Whisky.

This single malt is a blend of several casks and illustrates the diversity and richness of the whiskies produced by the Yoichi distillery. It also serves as an introduction to the more prestigious cask strength versions that have earned this distillery its international reputation.

The brand

The brand

“Best Single Malt in the World” This highly prized World Whiskies Awards title has been picked up twice (2002 and 2008) by a Yochi single malt. Such recognition was a shock for the Scottish distillers, and a revelation for many whisky fans. The Yoichi distillery, one kilometre from the Sea of Japan, produces a whisky with salty, slightly medicinal notes, not unlike its Scottish cousins from the Isle of Islay. Yoichi has its own cooperage, and takes particular care in the selection of its barrels, made on site from new oak, a practice that has become rare in Scotland. Find out more

Un whisky sous contrôle Un whisky parfaitement maitrisé et apaisant à la dégustation car n'exigeant pas de brainstormer plus qu'il ne faut. Tout est en place, tout semble équilibré entre les épices, le bois, le fruité, la tourbe. Rien ne prend le dessus. Lorsque j'ai acheté ce whisky, j'ai commencé par le noser régulièrement sans même le déguster, tant le nez me séduisait. Aujourd'hui, ce Yoichi me séduit de la même façon à chaque fois que je le retrouve. Certainement parce que je lui trouve peu de ces notes de tête qui ne correspondent pas à mon goût mais aussi parce que sa tourbe est plus facile à appréhender que celle d'un ...disons Laphroaig (au hasard...)Essayez un mizuwari de luxe avec ce Yoichi, ça fonctionne terriblement bien ! Bref, pour mon budget, c'est le japonais ultime.

Vraiment un grand Découvert au Japon, ce whisky peut sans aucun doute rivaliser avec les grands écossais de la même gamme. Il a un goût bien malté, avec juste ce qu'il faut de tourbe. Son équilibre est parfait et sa longueur en bouche suffisamment longue pour prolonger le plaisir.A découvrir absolumentPour ceux qui le peuvent, allez visiter la distillerie à Hokkaido et goûtez absolument le 25 ans single cask, à 54.1°. Le meilleur whisky que j'ai goûté à ce jour.
