  2. Docmacwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Jim Murray has awarded 96.5 points to the Chichibu The Peated 2010/2013. "Clean, elegant, does exactly what it says on the tin...and a lot, lot more besides...". Pure matter of taste...

  3. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

    I think it's just awful. Look for a full ashtray, chew it right through until it drools, then sip it down - have fun.

  4. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    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!
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Salt, iodine, and some notes of white fruit. The persistence is good and the aromas pleasant. A nice surprise!

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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.
