The second release of peated whisky from Ichiro Akuto's Chichibu distillery. Distilled in 2010 from heavily peated, 59.6pmm malt, it's bottled at a higher strength than the first batch, giving a bolder and more intensely smoky flavour, with spice and sweetness.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Andy M
Full, clean, much more restrained and elegant than the older bottling. The smoke, brine, grassy notes are all still there but they seem are much more integrated.
Elegant, creamy, well-balanced alcohol, vanilla, brine, white peach, apple, scented aromatic spices. Delicious.
Soft, delicate smoke and white fruits. I finished off my notes here with ‘divine’.
The difference between this and the previous edition is vast. Ichiro’s taken something that was good and taken it up several levels. It’s interesting to note that even with a higher level of alcohol and peating, there is much more restraint in this one and it’s balanced. All the flavour and power is there, but it approaches you slowly and woos you, it doesn’t need to do anything fancy, no chat-up lines required – it sits back and lets you fall in love with ease.
