The first whisky in The Whisky Exchange exclusive Chichibu Martial Arts Trilogy – a 2015-vintage ex-bourbon cask. Chichibu produces some of Japan's most sought after whisky, and this release shows why. Matured in a simple bourbon cask, this showcases the distillery's rich and fruity character, amplified with layers of spice from the cask. A great whisky and the perfect opening bottle for this very limited trilogy.Tasting Notes (1)
Chichibu Martial Arts Trilogy
This release of three single-cask Chichibu whiskies – with three-dimensional lenticular labels designed by Elixir Distillers creative director Raj ‘MrC’ Chavda – celebrates Japanese martial arts and the great whisky being made at Chichibu. The very limited series consists of 2014-vintage beer and chibidaru casks, and a 2015-vintage ex-bourbon cask.
No of Bottles
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Apple tarte tatin, crunchy toffee and apple boiled sweets – intense orchard fruit with sweetness and a touch of fruity acidity. Pastry notes develop, adding in extra layers of vanilla and exotic spice – cumin, ground ginger, allspice and clove: more jerk than curry. Tropical fruit notes build around the edges – mango jam, juicy pineapple and dried papaya – while spiced custard rolls though the middle with white and milk chocolate.
Sweet and spicy, with ginger-laced caramel, chocolate sauce and chocolate sponge cake to start, all backed up by baked apples dusted with cinnamon and brown sugar. Minty notes build – mint fondant and mint chocolate chips – as the chocolate fades, and layers of orchard fruit emerge – red-wine poached pears, apple sauce, fresh tart green apples and sweet red apples, all dusted with rich muscovado sugar.
Apples and pears with a touch of chilli heat, mint chocolate chips and beeswax-polished oak.
