Ichiro’s Malt Double Distilleries Pure Malt Japanese Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: No Age Statement Country: Japan
Chichibu distillery was founded in 2004 by Ichiro Akuto, and produced its first spirit in 2008. It was the first new Japanese distillery since 1973 and now boasts being one of the major players in the Japanese whisky market. It is located at Chichibu, a city the heart of a mountainous region of Saitama Prefecture in the village of Chichibu, the distillery is only a little less than 2 hours by train from central Tokyo, and enjoys hot and heavy summers and cold and dry winters. This climate allows the distillery to produce the whisky quicker than other local distilleries.
The Double Distilleries pure malt whisky combines malts from the closed Hanyu and new Chichibu distilleries. The Akuto family, whose history with sake production dates back to the 17th century, had operated the Hanyu distillery up until 2000 when the distillery was silenced due to financial difficulties and eventually dismantled in 2004 under new ownership. Bottled at 46% it has been matured, vatted and bottled at Ichiro Akuto’s Chichibu distillery.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Plenty of oak with sweet aromas and slightly floral. Green fruits take the lead of pears and apples.
Taste: More green fruits and sweetness with plenty of oak. Some spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. The mouthfeel does have a soapy effect.
Finish: Lots of sweet spices, plenty of drying oak, liquorice, and creamy mint ice cream.
