This is like velvet on the palate. Oily enough to create nice, soft velvet coating without being too oily. Creamy texture with good flavours – dark and sweet notes.
"Like Some Velvet Morning" came to my mind when thinking about movies. Like the film, Yoichi 10 yrs is dark and mysterious. but obviously much better.
Actually, "Like Some Velvet Morning" the song by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood is more like this whisky. Tender and strong notes.
Nose: First, reminds me of beer. Malted, fresh barley with fruits. Floral notes rising from the back. Freshly vibrant and dark dram.
Taste: Nicely oily, creating a touch of velvet. Turns into coal smoke with some vanilla, fruits and nutty toffee.
Finish: Oak with fruity notes in a creamy finish. Smoke coming nicely from depths in the aftertaste.
Balance: Pure velvet, with deep and dark flavours. Great dram!
