Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or vif.
  • Nose : fin, complexe. D’une extrême délicatesse avec ses notes de nougat et de noix de coco, il devient rapidement floral (chèvrefeuille, iris). À l’aération, il fait preuve de beaucoup de tension et de minéralité. La mirabelle et le citron dominent la palette aromatique. Beaucoup plus tard, de nouveaux fruits secs (noix, amande) accompagnent des épices fortes (poivre gris, badiane).
  • Palate : pleine de maturité et de fraîcheur. Elle commence par installer sur le pourtour du palais un épais tapis de mousse. Le milieu de bouche est particulièrement fruité (pêche abricotée, mangue, fraise, kaki). Avec une délicatesse inouïe, elle devient de plus en plus pâtissière (cake aux fruits) et confite (pruneau, figue).
  • Overall : longue, nuancée. Elle n’en finit pas de prolonger la bouche sans rien perdre en intensité et en puissance. Des agrumes (oranges, clémentines, kumquat) sont là à profusion. Leur jus légèrement acidulé est un pur délice. Au fur et à mesure, une fine couche de toffee vient les recouvrir. La rétro-olfaction est réglissée et tendrement épicée (cannelle). Le verre vide n’a rien perdu du premier nez, et révèle, en plus des fruits confits, une très légère trace de fumée.
The brand

The brand

Created in 2008, Chichibu Japanese single malt whisky is already well-known to Japanese whisky enthusiasts, and to whisky connoisseurs generally. Entirely produced at the distillery and soon, for some expressions, with local barley and peat, and even Japanese oak casks, Chichibu is on its way to becoming the first 100% Japanese whisky, thanks to the efforts of its creator, Ichiro Akuto. Fermented in vats made of mizunara (a variety of Japanese oak that is very highly regarded for whisky) and distilled in small stills, the resulting liquid presents a surprising maturity and complexity, even when it is very young. A beautifully crafted whisky.

The distillery

Founded in 2007 by Ichiro Akuto, the grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery, Chichibu has been active since February 2008. Consisting of two stills made to order in Scotland by Forsyth’s, this distillery has a very exclusive following, it is not only the first Japanese single malt distillery since Hakushu, but also the smallest. In 2008 Ichiro started selling a range of very young whiskies called ‘Newborn’, before launching his first ‘real’ whisky, a three-year-old at cask strength, at Whisky Live Paris 2011. The distillery also houses the last stocks of Karuizawa, Kawasaki and Hanyu, and has its own bottling facility.
