A single-beer-cask-matured whisky from Japanese boutique distiller Chichibu, selected by and bottled exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. The cask was previously used to mature Shiga-Kogen brewery's The Far East, a huge triple ipa packed with fruity hoppy flavour, some of which has come through into the whisky. The result is an intensely flavoured and complex whisky that's a suitable final entry in the Chichibu Martial Arts 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
Piles of fruit and grain. Granola and porridge piled high with mango, papaya, guava, pineapple and sultanas, all dried and rehydrating in the creaminess. Chocolate milk and rich milk chocolate develop, along with more savoury dark grains and leafy hints – very green. Butter toffee pokes in around the sides along with a slice of Millionaire’s Shortbread.
A huge burst of fruity hops leads the charge: big green leafiness and layers of mango, pineapple, sharp white grape and bitter green leaves, all backed up by a hoppy medicinalness – like licking a handful of hop pellets. That fades through dusky hoppy spice to more familiar flavours: green grass, stewed apple, meadow flowers and crisp, sweet pastry, although all with a leafy, hoppy background.
Medicinal hops linger, with dried and fresh pineapple fading to spice and green grass.
