Special edition to celebrate the anniversary of 160 years of Franco-Japanese friendship.
Editions, even "basic" Chichibu tear more and more.
● The dress.
Many tears thick with large irregular drops.
● The nose.
Open on cereals, malted barley, a sweet vanilla accompanied by a soft caramel.
White flowers reminiscent of hawthorn, honey of white flowers, fruit too: Pear and nashi.
The wood is soft and velvety without aggressiveness, fine. Some barks of lemon and orange, mandarin and papaya.
A small amount of spices close the nose.
● The mouth.
Tender, syrupy and sweet on white flowers and honey.
The cereals come slightly tickling the tongue wrapped by a sweet and young vanilla wood.
Pear and nashi, pineapple, papaya and gray pepper. Mineral and crystalline, lemon, a little clove and a slight vegetable.
● The final.
Long, busty, exotic.
Pepper and cloves.
A gourmet and complete Chichibu while remaining spicy and complex, it will grow on the length.
Really good and interesting.
If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 89.
