Yoichi Sherry & Sweet Distillery Limited Bottling Note

The Yoichi Distillery (Hokkaido, Japan) releases a distillery-exclusive single malt, the Yoichi Sherry & Sweet. This expression deviates from the distillery’s typical profile of delicate fruits and floral notes, showcasing the influence of ex-oloroso sherry casks. Oloroso sherry, known for its dry and nutty character, readily imparts these complexities to the final spirit.

The nose offers a rich and inviting interplay of dried fruits (raisin, prune, fig) and baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), reflecting the combined influence of sherry cask maturation and traditional oak casks. Hints of caramel, toffee, and chocolate further accentuate the sherry contribution.

On the palate, the sweetness from the sherry casks takes center stage, presenting raisin, date, and honey notes alongside a warming 55% ABV. The malty base spirit and a touch of oak tannin provide a welcome balance, preventing an overly cloying character. Some tasters may detect a subtle smokiness, a signature touch of the Yoichi house style that occasionally peeks through the sherry influence.

The finish is medium-length, with the sweet and spicy notes gradually fading. A touch of drying oak tannin lingers on the tongue, adding a final layer of complexity.

This limited-edition bottling, sought after for its unique profile, showcases the transformative power of sherry cask maturation on Yoichi’s signature malt. It offers a glimpse into a lesser-explored facet of the esteemed distillery.
