If you have never perceived salt in a whisky, this one should help you! This Chichibu, although very young (3 years), is already very complex. A good surprise, not obvious to apprehend, but that makes travel!
Very fresh notes, close to a tequila or a mezcal, less sweet. Notes of spray, salt, iodine. It's very maritime. Very pungent, as if there was a hint of mustard. Liquorice is also very present on the nose, accompanied by a little lemon. Grass, cereals ... It's a very characteristic nose of a (very) young whisky.
Very invasive. Smoke and the freshness of liquorice. Against all odds, some notes of fruit also: pear, apricot, lemon. It is very iodized and salty, with more notes of pepper and clove. The peat is reflected here by notes of cold tobacco and tar. Although perfectly balanced, this is a pretty amazing mix.
Salt, iodine, and some notes of white fruit. The persistence is good and the aromas pleasant. A nice surprise!
Nose: intense smoky and peaty, behind it sweet pastries, vanilla, a little shower stick and light fruit. Mouth: strong, smoke and peat, very oily in texture, a nice sweetness. Finish: sweet with peat smoke, a bit sooty. Long and smoky.
Conclusion: a great young smoker.
