Another excellent whisky Ichiro Akuto, who shows again that there is excellent Japanese whisky beyond Nikka and Suntory.
This is a blend of, unsurprisingly, malt and grain. The bottling of course includes spirit from his Chichibu distillery, but also spirit from America, Canada, Scotland and Ireland. This is truly an international whisky.
This whisky serves up notes of hot malt, peach and apricot, peppery spice, vanilla, lemon zest, cream, ginger, cigar smoke, cinnamon and fragrant lemon grass.
A delicious whisky, bottled at 46% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration.
A fantastic example of how spirits of very different styles and regions can come together to make something extraordinary.
