CHICHIBU 2010 Single Cask


Self pick-up from our Shop in Robertson Quay only.

Created in 2008, the Japanese single malt whisky Chichibu is already well known to Japanese whisky enthusiasts, as well as whisky connoisseurs in general. Produced 100% in its distillery, and soon for certain vintages from local barley and peat, and even Japanese oak, Chichibu is on its way to becoming the first 100% Japanese whisky, thanks to the efforts of its creator, Ichiro Akuto. Fermented in mizunara (a highly sought-after variety of Japanese oak for whisky) casks and distilled in small stills, the liquid collected is surprising for its maturity and complexity, even at a very young age. A true artisanal whisky.

The least that can be said is that each new Chichibu is eagerly awaited by enthusiasts worldwide. This rare single cask does not deviate from the rule! In fact, it embodies the nuanced, freedom-loving style, yet forged with the toughest steel of this single malt that has become legendary in just a few years. Hats off to Mr. Ichiro Akuto.

Tasting Notes

: Fine, complex. Extremely delicate with notes of nougat and coconut, it quickly becomes floral (honeysuckle, iris). With airing, it shows a lot of tension and minerality. Mirabelle and lemon dominate the aromatic palette. Much later, new nuts (walnuts, almonds) accompany strong spices (black pepper, star anise).

Palate : Full of maturity and freshness. It starts by setting up a thick foam carpet on the edge of the palate. The mid-palate is particularly fruity (peachy apricot, mango, strawberry, persimmon). With unparalleled delicacy, it becomes more and more pastry (fruit cake) and cand (prune, fig).

Finish : Long, nuanced. It never stops extending the mouth without losing intensity and power. Citrus fruits (oranges, clementines, kumquat) are abundant. Their slightly acidic juice is a pure delight. Over time, a fine layer of toffee covers them. The aftertaste is licorice-y and tenderly spicy (cinnamon). The empty glass has lost nothing of the first nose, and reveals, in addition to the cand fruits, a very light trace of smoke.
