The 2020 release of Chichibu On The Way, matured in a secret combination of casks and bottled in 2019. Aromas of dried apricot, sultana, apple, pear, pineapple and coconut mingle with polished oak and honeysuckle on the nose. The palate offers notes of buttery pastry, stewed fruit, dried pineapple, melon and strawberry laces.Tasting Notes (1)
- Stewed Fruit
No of Bottles
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Fruit, fruit and more fruit – the fruitiest Chichibu I’ve ever tried. Sweet apples, just-ripe pears, fresh pineapple, plump sultanas, dessert grapes and dried apricot. Coconut cream and a dusting of desiccated coconut follow, with buttery pastry and a touch of double cream not far behind. Hints of polished oak and spring-meadow honeysuckle develop.
Rich and rounded, with sweet butter and buttery pastry dipping into lightly stewed fruit: the apples and pears from the nose with a sprinkling of dried pineapple. Sake-like notes of white melon and strawberry laces build, with yeasty touches and malted milk biscuits. Soft spice sits at the back.
Green grass and flaky-pastry-topped apple pies. Gentle char notes develop with a touch of tannic pear skin.
My favourite Chichibu in a long while. We don’t know the exact cask makeup of the bottling, but I agree with TWE co-founder Sukhinder that there is almost definitely some IPA cask in the mix – the layers of fruit with a touch of yeastiness definitely go in that direction. Combine that with carefully controlled oak influence, and you’ve got a winner. I really hope that the ongoing Chichibu takes after this style. If so, I’ll be a regular customer.
