Whisky Reviews for Chichibu 2011

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.68 points

  1. Seb.Whisky scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Very supple and fruity for this age and this power. Mineral, accompanied by exotic fruits like mango, coconut milk, just ripe banana. Then it will mutate on flat peach, marshmallow, cereals. A nose that shows great maturity for its 6 years and especially that will evolve continuously in the glass.

    Palate: The power comes in a very progressive way, accompanied by notes of bitter lemon, although the texture brings an interesting balance, relatively fat. Its malted side will appear, with always these bitter and vegetable attacks that will slowly meet a creamy vanilla that will prevent it from fully dominating. I would say that his youth will translate into an activity of alcohol on the tip of the tongue, with a small metallic appearance at the end of the mouth, but its aromas will invade the rest of the mouth. A whisky very different from Scottish and especially different from what I know in Japanese.

    Finale: Bitter lemon, wet paper notes. There is a plant supply, something like chlorophyll, or a kind of mint. Finally caramel to finish.
