Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or intense.
  • Nose : frais, dynamique. Des notes florales (genêt, mimosa), des fruits frais (melon, figue), de la cire d’abeille, de la noix fraîche, de l’orge maltée, de la vanille bourbon, des agrumes confits (citron, pamplemousse), une belle amertume réglissée, des miels à profusion ou bien encore, sous-jacentes, des notes de sous-bois, voici un aperçu de ce que propose le nez de ce Chichibu divin de plénitude et de maturité.
  • Palate : charnelle, remarquablement équilibrée. La fève de cacao et la noix de coco sont les premières saveurs qu’elle diffuse. Elle nous emmène ensuite à travers champs avec ses notes de pissenlits et d’herbe fraîchement coupée. Le milieu de bouche est indéniablement salin (salicornes) alors même que surgissent de nombreux fruits exotiques (ananas, grenade, mangue). De la pruine de ces fruits s’échappent quelques notes de levures qui renvoient à l’étape de la fermentation.
  • Overall : longue, tendre. Avec toujours cette élégance qui caractérise Chichibu, chaque saveur est parfaitement déclinée. On trouve : des amandes pilées, de la vanille, du toffee, du miel de bruyère, de la marmelade, des zestes de citron, du safran, de la cardamome… En rétro olfaction, une bise légère vient caresser chacune des particules de la palette aromatique et gustative.
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.
