Whisky Reviews for Chichibu On The Way

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.10 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, very powerful in vanilla and caramel, very "bourbonesque" in the soul. On the palate, a rare combination of chocolate and fresh fruit. Generous in spices. Woody finish, delicate, with coffee. With a little water reveal floral notes on the nose (perhaps from Japanese oak barrels). No trace of youth in this whisky extremely well done and tasty! Enthusiasm 4/5

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Another great mole from the land of the rising sun, a wonderful aroma, a small dip in taste, but overall very pleasant and deep, good work with the fortress, I will not say that it is not felt, but it is easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Warm, open, confectionery motifs - custard, shortbread, glaze, sweet vanilla; then there are spicy-woody notes - carpentry workshop, varnish, solvent, resin, hot wood dust; a bit of mineral tones - wet grindstone, stone dust, wet rubble; broken young branches, the smell of a young bark, wet metal, after a while the raisins are clearly manifested and confectionery flavors are returned.
    • Taste
      A sharp, gradually softening, ginger-peppery wave, soft spicy oak, raisins - is rich and powerful, but very ascetic and sparse in terms of the variety of constituents and halftones.
    • Finish
      Oak-pastry with a dense substrate of ginger, grapefruit peel, apple pastille; dried apples, dried pears, light fruit sour, vanilla.

    By Serge 

    Chichibu ‘On The Way’ (58.5%, OB, Ichiro’s Malt, Japan, 10700 bottles, 2013): 85 Punkte

  5. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very fierce and fruity, with a nice minty edge to it. Some small sediment (cask sediment?) in the sample. Tasted 18/10/2016 in a line-up of three Chichibu samples. 
    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity! Flower blossoms (could that be the Japanese cherry blossom?). Caramel (Werther's Echte butterscotch candy) going towards Haagse Hopjes. Malty as well. Pine tree bark on the background. 
    • Taste
      Waxy mouthfeel, a bomb of fresh fruitiness (apple, pear), dried apricot/peach and a tad drying spiciness. Hint of mint. 
    • Finish
      Bit astringent (probably due to the high ABV); prickly at the bottom front sides of the mouth (besides the tongue), and at the sides of the tongue itself. Mint again and it keeps lingering. 

  6. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A good, interesting Chichibu! One should not take too much water, less than other whiskys with this strength. Then it reminds refreshingly of apricots and melons. A very good, fruity whisky, very tasty and clearly better than the 2015er. The fewer bottles I have of that, the more I think that's great. On new German . That's good, man, little water, better. Have melons and marionelles or so beautiful name as Geschmakk, better than the Schnorre full of wasps, abr nix drink too much, dan no mer good. At kozze schmekke all the same.

  7. businessdouche scored this whisky 86 points Member Junior

    Eye: Golden Nose: A rustic nose, both fruity and floral, young whisky very well done. The upstream work done by Ichiro pays and it feels. Honey, chamomile and linden make all this sing. Fruit from the orchard, lemons, yuzu, and peaches are waiting for you. Like an empty tobacco box with a fruit cake. Recall the spring and youth of these very old Speyside whiskys that we love: Convalmore, Banff ... Palate: In the heart. It is intoxicating because it is light but with a lot of character. The distillate and malt are very clear, with notes of mint, lime and some basil, but we are far from Havana Club Mojito. A little something of an agricultural rum that must come from this mixture of bitterness and sugar. Final: Long enough. On sweet notes, mint and lime again. It's pretty funny.

  8. magic_slim scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very good whisky.
    • Nose
      Sweet and grainy with notes of vanilla at first nosing. Yeasty, notes of candy floss, melons and apricot jam. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Fruity (canned peaches, oranges) and very sweet at first mouthfeel, then it becomes powerful, hot and peppery. Notes of sandalwood are present as well.
    • Finish
      Wow! Very long and spicy, warming from deep inside. Very pleasant.
