  1. Saftkenner scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great bottling, especially considering its youthful age. Nose and palate excite me the most. In the finish he weakens slightly.
    We don't even need to talk about the (secondary market) price...
    • Nose
      91 91
      Harmonious, sweet, fruity, spicy, with powerful vanilla. Hardly any alcohol noticeable in the nose.
      Green apple, juicy orange, full pound of vanilla, lime, cinnamon, green tea, hay, subtle oak spice.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very fruity and powerful, slightly spicy. Rather light body. Orange, vanilla, mate tea, green apple, caramel, honeydew melon.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Short to medium length finish. Again the green apple with some vanilla. Slightly dry, very slightly sticky.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Smell: Citrus takes over the nose, whipped cream, vanilla, eucalyptus, lemon, rosemary, nuts, nectar, green apple and orange peel, with a savory touch, white pepper, earthy and slightly smoky ;
    • Taste
      90 90
      Entrance: Very strong mouthfeel, more herbs and lime, blood orange, slightly salty pepper noodles, like a spice jar on the table, various spices also give a gin feel, honeydew melon and Passion fruit, nuts, pepper, oak spiciness, and... a little salty, like salted butter;
    • Finish
      88 88
      Finish: Mid-length, baked apple pie, baked sweet potato, vanilla cream mousse, orange peel, licorice, pepper dipped fruit, minerality, a BBQ wooden tray with chunks of sea salt.

  4. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very intense and yet harmonious Chichi, a bit too eichig-spicy for me, but otherwise nothing to complain about, no missing notes, the important Chichibu notes also appear, very good.
    • Nose
      Coconut oil, almonds, toffee, nice malt, camphor and intense vanilla, shortbread, some peach and green apple, salted caramel
    • Taste
      Spices and bourbon sweetness, camphor, nutmeg, some black pepper, then after about 10-15 seconds comes the nice Chichibu banana, banana chips, coconut flakes, some IPA, nice malt and roasted oak chips, some papaya chips, lots of ginger, toffee
    • Finish
      Toasted Almonds, Malt, Banana Chips, Ginger, Medium to Long, Anise, Tick Chamomile

  6. SimonOHA scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very flattering, nicely made, easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Nose of salted butter caramel, gingerbread, orange blossom honey and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Very sweet gingerbread on the palate, nice smoke, salted butter caramel liqueur. Really like the nose. Oranges and tropical fruits (mango, banana, pineapple). Perfect alcohol.
    • Finish
      Finish on orange peel, a superb mineral and sweet smoke, dry wood.

  7. jjkmlss scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Tastes cold and noble, with sandalwood, kiwifruit, mango and melon -- at some point even durian. Raw almonds and great maltiness are also a plus.

  8. stashdong scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    The paris edition is getting better year over year
    • Nose
      88 88
      like prior version, still strong on nose. gummy bear candy, delightful green plum
    • Taste
      88 88
      a typical young chichibu, floral, then light salty and smokiness, somewhat i recall a bunnahabain i reviewed earlier
    • Finish
      89 89
      medium to long, citrus and green apple profile

    The best of the series !

  12. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    fine spices, candied vanilla, excessively buttered caramel, orchard fruits with juice in syrup
    dry wood, fine spices, those which dominate any good kitchen, a little star fruit, fine exotic fruits in syrup mixed, a little lychee floats, velvety sensation in the mouth, also creamy
    fine, subtle, on a very good blended somewhere, without too much variation, it flows, it stays at the bottom of the glass like nectar
