  1. kanpai79 scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Beautiful easy drinker in cask strength. Does that sound a bit grassy? Comes to some-far more expensive SC bottlings quite close. The 2019er bottling is in the starting blocks .. you may be curious.

    My first Chichibu at the time ... the revival so to speak. Have him to this day in the glass, even if he can not stand against the 2013er version. Great whisky and good entry into the Chichibu universe.

    young japanese whisky
    • Nose
      Orchard fruit sensation, quite green, a little bitterness
      a little vanilla, it's quite grassy, hay under the apple trees
    • Taste
      water of life of quetsches, of pear without the fresh side,
      it's sweet, strangely, spicy too, a rancid return
      fresh, fresh malt, slightly moistened hay and dry wood
      always this bitterness!
    • Finish
      spices more present, a little peppery, rancid butter there, vanilla and crushed green fruits, the juice flows and remains present.
