By Serge 

Chichibu 2009/2012 ‘The Peated’ (50.5%, OB, Ichiro’s Malt, Japan, 5000 bottles): 86 Punkte

DrinkingWhisky

Color
Deep gold
Nose

Peat of course, like an old ashtray. Something rubbery there as well (the smell of rubber bands on your fingers after you've been playing with them for too long). Once in a while a whiff of fish. Some vanilla sweetness lingering on the background. Smoke from the ashtray when you take deep whiffs of this. 

Taste

Oh, that's weird. The initial mouthfeel is completely off (feels like a very light dram), but then it opens up and releases a sweet peatiness, combined with the rubber bands of the nose. Getting better, it needs time to develop in the mouth. Seems that the flavours mix when swallowed. 

Finish

Warm and with the peatiness becoming more smoky, but dissipating quite quickly, which makes it a medium long finish. 

Comments

Not very complex, and it seems slightly off to me. Maybe it needed more time in the cask to marry the flavours well. Some small sediment (cask sediment?) in the sample. Tasted 18/10/2016 in a line-up of three Chichibu samples.

Ich habe nur den 2010er Peated aufgemacht und die offene Flasche sogleich verschenkt. Der ist mir viel zu rauchig. Auf das Oeffnen der letzten 2009er Peated habe ich daher verzichtet und diese verkauft. Später bin ich wieder zu einer gekommen wie die Jungfrau zum Kind. Die verkaufe ich auch.


Auf Neudeusch: Ohhh, schmeke wie Aschenbecher voll, fresse zigarette und andere, das voll krass. Schmekke auch wi Auspuff von VW Diesel. Neme Blastiksak, absaugen diese von VW, rein Wasser, musst du schüütteln, dann saufen egal diese. Is gutt, wenn mer Eier hat als Gurmee Geschmak.

Single dram. Blind tasting. Regionals 2014_08
Came 4th, w 7.83 pts

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Zajímavy mix silné rašeliny, jemné nasládlekvětinové vůně a gumy (ty sladce vonící kolečka ze stavebnice Merkur). Hodně zvláštní a neotřelé aroma, které ale dohromady skvěle funguje, tohle se mi moc líbí. Po delším čase identifikuju ještě jednu vůni- lipo! (88 b)

Taste

Rašelina, guma.Uz při prvním poválení této whisky po jazyku cítím, ze tady něco nehraje. Chuťově je řídká, tenká, plochá, ale přitom dostatečně rašelinová. Sílu alkoholu bych vůbec nehádal, působí slaběji. Pro mě, ač je tam rašeliny dost, je dost fádní.Dochuť je zemitá, rašelinová a opět ta guma. (78 b)

Finish


Comments

Mám z této whisky rozpačity dojem, a to protoze mě hodně oslovila ve vůni, zatímco v chuti zklamala. Měl jsem jen maly vzorek, ktery byl od whiskyfestivalu v lahvičce, která byla jen poloplná, tak nevím, jestli časem neutrpěla, rád ji ještě přechutnám, kdyz bude přílezitost.
