We were supposed to meet up at Spirit Of Speyside but my plans got cancelled, so although I've never actually met some of these guys, we talk regularly on twitter and have occasional video hangouts.
@Coldorak and @JulienCassignol live in France, we've swapped a few samples and decided to use some of them to do a live blind tasting on twitter with a few friends. @cold had won a number of Japanese Yoichi distillery exclusives in an auction and wanted to share the joy.
He'd sent us all 4 samples but hadn't forgotten to label them - we'd have to work out which was which!
Next was Yoichi 2
Then we were on to Yoichi 3
Final dram of the evening was Yoichi 4
How did we rate them?
A great night, drinking great whisky with great friends : @Coldorak,@JulienCassignol, @SpiritAndWood, @jwbassman_ and @WhiskynStuff
