MWR Mizunara Wood Reserve 46%
Blended Malt Whisky, Japan / Honshu - Saitama, 70cl, Ref: 16306
Though the origins of the single malts that go into this generous vatted malt have not been officially revealed, like Double Distilleries, they probably come from Hanyu and Chichibu. Bottled without chill-filtration, this Mizunara Wood Reserve was, however, as its name would imply, finished in a mizunara cask, a famous Japanese oak. The ever so specific influence of this noble wood is glaring: the tasting is saturated with complex, spicy fragrances characterised by woody aromas, and invites us to take a relaxed stroll through the forest. The beautiful golden bronze colour of this whisky perfectly matches its generosity and sweet pastry profile.
Profile: generous and spicy. Stewed fruits then take the relay: roast fig, red fruit coulis and roast peach.

- The brand
The brandFounded in 2007 by Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery, Chichibu has been in business since February 2008. Consisting of two stills made to order in Scotland by Forsyth's, it is not only the first Japanese single malt distillery since Hakushu, but it was also the smallest and most confidential. Beginning with the sale in 2008 of several very young whiskey cuvées, the "newborn" range, Ichiro offered, from Whiskey Live Paris 2011, his first "real" whiskey, a three-year-old cask brut. Today the distillery bottles its own whiskeys up to 12 years old for its Chichibu and Ichiro's Malt range. The distillery also houses the last stocks of Karuizawa, Kawasaki and Hanyu.
