    Official release notes

    Distilled, matured and bottled at CHICHIBU Distillery, Japan
    A joint bottling for Whiskytempel & Japanwhisky.com

    Barley type: NFC Tipple
    Distilled: 2008
    Bottled: 2017

    61,9% ABV

    Matured in sherry puncheon from 2009 until June 2013, then refilled in a white wine cask from a very famous french winery (we are not allowed to say which one) and matured four more years until February 2017, before the cask was bottled.

    Official tasting notes

    Colour: dark gold

    Nose: fresh wine notes, fruity, light, young peaches, lime blossom

    Palate: Floral and a bit grassy, with fresh wine notes. The light wine notes interact with subtle fruit notes like mirabelle and peach. When you add some water, lime blossom, mountain currant and a suberb bitterness of fresh grapefruits appear. Very oily and creamy mouth feeling.

    Finish: long, oily, syrupy, later some menthol and pink grapefruits, really. Hints of green tea.
