Calmar
Expert Senior Calmar Tasting note
25 Aug 2017 11:07 am
Calmar gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Тёплый, открытый, кондитерские мотивы - заварной крем, песочное тесто, глазурь, сладкая ваниль; затем проявляются пряно-древесные нотки - столярная мастерская, лак, растворитель, смола, горячая древесная пыль; немного минеральных тонов - мокрый точильный камень, каменная пыль, мокрый щебень; переломанные молодые ветки, запах молодой коры, мокрый металл,спустя некоторое время отчётливо проявляется изюм и возвращаются кондитерские ароматы.

Taste
Резкий, постепенно смягчающийся, имбирно-перечная волна, мягкий пряный дуб, изюм - насыщенно и мощно, но весьма аскетично и скупо в плане разнообразия составляющих и полутонов.


Finish
Дубово-кондитерское с плотной подложкой из имбиря, цедры грейпфрута, яблочной пастилы; сушёные яблоки, сушёные груши, лёгкая фруктовая кислинка, ваниль.


Comments

Ещё один отличный молт из страны восходящего солнца, прекрасный аромат, небольшой провал во вкусе, но в целом очень приятный и глубокий, хорошая работа с крепостью, не скажу что не чувствуется, но пьётся легко.

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

Color
Yellow gold
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. 

Comments

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.

Ein guter, interessanter Chichibu! Man darf nicht zu viel Wasser nehmen, weniger als bei anderen Whiskys mit dieser Stärke. Dann erinnert er erfrischend an Aprikosen und Melonen. Ein sehr guter, fruchtiger Whisky, sehr süffig und klar besser als der 2015er. Je weniger Flaschen ich von dem habe, des mehr finde ich den super.

Auf Neudeutsch. Das gut, Mann, Wasser wenig, besser. Haben Melone und Marionellen odr so enlich name als Geschmakk, besser als die Schnorre voll Wespen, abr nix saufe zu vil, dan keine mer gut. Bei kozze schmekke alle gleich.

Œil : Doré

 

Nez : Un nez champêtre, a la fois fruité et floral, de jeune whisky tres bien fait. Le travail en amont fait par Ichiro paye et cela se sent. Miel, camomille et tilleul font chanter tout cela. Fruits du verger, citrons, yuzu, et peches sont au rendez vous. Comme une boite a tabac vide dans laquelle aurait trainé un cake aux fruits. Rappelle le printemps et la jeunesse de ces très vieux whiskies du Speyside que l’on adore : Convalmore, Banff…

 

Bouche : En cœur. C’est enivrant parce que c’est léger mais avec beaucoup de caractère. Le distillat et le malt transparaissent très clairement, notes de menthe, de citron vert et un peu de basilic, mais on est loin du Mojito façon Havana Club. Un petit quelque chose d’un rhum agricole quand même qui doit venir de ce mélange d’amertume et de sucre.

 

Finale : Assez longue. Sur des notes sucrées, de menthe et de citron vert encore. C’est assez rigolo.

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.

Comments

Very good whisky.
