    Ichiro Akuto told me that that is bottled in 2007.

    Thank him for information.

    I love this so much, should have bought this when it was still available (took several years to sell out, at about 60 euros). By far my favorite blend, very smooth and accessible, yet it has some typically japanese characteristics, of much more expensive whiskies (some of the good Hanyus typically).
    • Nose
      Caramel, then the lovely incense temple smell I so much love in some japanese whisky (mizunara wood?), mouthwatering smoked ham. Also flowery notes, jasmine, freshly opened apricots.
    • Taste
      Beautiful fruit to oak transition, creme brulee. 
    • Finish
      The amazing oaky bitterness I associate with mizunara (japanese oak). I might be wrong though, as I am not sure any mizunara casks where involved in this blend.

    Light, floral and delicate, but also sweet (slightly honeyed) and fruity. On the palate, superb balance, both intense and spicy and flexible on the other hand. Some notes of coffee. Finale floral, malty, sweet and long!

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Around autumn 2010. It`s one of the first bottles from Akuto Ichiro`s Venture whisky.
    So this should be placed under Venture Whisky / Chichibu, I guess.

    Anyone who has a clue when this was bottled?
