      Smell: orange, ripe apple, honey cake, a little sandalwood flavor, slightly meaty taste, there will still be some new wine feel, but as a 7-8 years of wine is very good;

      Entrance: bacon, savory preserved meat, sour plum and smoky, see! Here is a bag of "three squirrels" dried pork!
    • Finish

      Final rhyme: long salted preserved fruit, cream cake, cream chocolate, should be aged in bourbon barrels.

    Are we sure this is a 2011 vintage?

    N: Very youthful yet not in the slightest juvenile. Established in 2007 [blog], Chichibu really stands apart from most of the new distillery upstarts in the last 10 years.
    T: Full bodied and with fair indications that this could enjoy long-term maturation, compared to other newer distilleries from warm climates, who’s spirit is designed to peak early.
    F: Tasty barley distillate with fruity chocolate overtones.
    C: A very decent young whisky, sold out within the first 30 minutes of the TWE show opening its doors.

    Scores a B[-]

    An excellent Bourbon cask matured expression of Chichibu. Like the previous small releases, well crafted! Hats of to mr. Ichiro again.
