    Pretty interesting peated Chichibu. the mizunara presence is pretty subtle to me, overall a good whisky but not worth ANYwhere near what's its selling for on the secondary market

      wow, smells like an islay scotch - ocean spray, barbecue chips, cedar wood, slight incense but not super heavy - I'm searching for the mizunara. Mostly the peat comes through. Slightly floral, a little sweetness but also a little glue. Interesting

      sweet with sugar, very light peat initially and then it becomes noticeable, vanilla, the mesquite/smokiness comes through - might be part of peat or part of mizunara. Some tropical notes follow up like pineapple and grilled banana. very pleasant
    • Finish

      sweet and nice integrated spice, reminds me of a laphroaig but sweeter. Nice gentle spice, yellow fruit and slightly tropical too, vanilla. Very smooth and long with the spicy/peaty finish riding with me for minutes afterwards
