From Drinks By The Dram comes this lovely The Whisky Advent Calender. On day 2 we got to open a Japanese whisky from the Yoichi Distillery. This distillery is the 1st one to be established by Nikka in 1934. This bottling is a no age statement single malt.
First nosing this one I get the notes of mulled fruits and bread baking in the oven. Bread that is just not yet done all the way… Maybe it reminds me more of yeast somewhere thinking of it now. Getting green apples, sultana, vanilla, orange pits, some very light dry spice notes, candied lemons and oranges. It has some dense sweet layers in it but also shows fresh and light notes.
