Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets verts.
  • Nose : ample, riche. Aérien, floral et malté, le premier nez se révèle également très concentré avec ses notes de citrons confits, de lait de coco et de fruits mûrs. Son harmonie est telle qu’à aucun moment son fort degré alcoolique n’est perceptible. Minéral, il évolue sur des notes d’ardoise et de schiste. Superbe.
  • Palate : vive, tendue. D’une rare élégance, son attaque en bouche est impressionnante de précision et de salinité. L’orge maltée resplendit. Qu’elle soit plein champ, en cours de germination ou de fermentation, elle exhale d’envoûtants parfums herbacés, floraux et fruités. La toute fin de bouche est particulièrement épicée (poivre, badiane).
  • Overall : longue, sereine. Finement réglissée et chocolatée, elle possède beaucoup de moelleux. Son amertume maltée est un pur délice de fraîcheur mentholée. Gourmande, elle se prolonge sur des notes de pain au levain et de brioche. La rétro-olfaction est citronnée et anisée, et le verre vide est plein d’une évanescence altière.
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.
