Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or soutenu
  • Nose : fruité, végétal. Évoque le caractère frais et printanier des whiskies irlandais. Note de poire Williams, de pêche et de fruits rouges (muroise, cassis, framboise). Le fruit de la passion émerge soudain du verre. Des agrumes, du jus de grenadia s’en suivent. En arrière-plan, une base plus céréalière, d’orge maltée, de chêne blanc (beurre frais et fraicheur mentholée).
  • Palate : au degré, purement et simplement irlandaise. Pêle-mêle de cassis, de menthe, de buis, puis de notes de chêne blanc. La noix et la noisette sont encore vertes et laiteuses. La douceur persiste.
  • Overall : fraîcheur mentholée. S’éternise sur les fruits secs. Salivante.
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.
