Ichiro’s Malt Double Distilleries – Chichibu & Hanyu

The Ichiro’s Malt whisky is a double distillery produce. The malt whisky has hence earned the qualities and character of the two rich distillates. The famed distilleries of Japan- the Hanyu distillery which is now closed and the Chichibu distillery which is still operational, have released the magnificent malt whisky.

The Hanyu brew has been matured in ex-sherry casks and the Chichibu distillate was aged in Japanese Mizunara oak casks. The result is the vatted malt whisky which has created quite a stir in the whisky world.

Look forward to savour the classy Ichiro’s if you are a hardcore fan of authentic Japanese whisky.

Tasting Notes for Ichiro’s Malt Double Distilleries – Chichibu & Hanyu

Nose: Fill up your whisky glass with Ichiro’s and that’s a sure way to delight and pamper your senses. Notes of fruit such as apple and pear dominate the drink. Along with this, a chocolaty vibe spreads throughout the whisky. The oak is in abundance in combination with bourbon and honeysuckle. Oriental aromas make their presence felt in the whisky. The sherry influence is big and you will be bowled over by the very fragrance of the liquor.

Palate: Fruity notes please your palate and give you a gentle high. There is a spicy feel and texture to the whisky. The spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and a bit of pepper blend through quite well. The drink is malty and the oaky flavours render a slightly heavy texture to the whisky.  The honey and chocolate tastes are indeed pleasurable.

Finish: Ichiro’s makes for a warm and a satisfying dram. There is a subtle bitter-ish flavour in the end. The spices linger on and the feel is liberating. Notes of fruit envelop your taste buds. The dram is smooth and pleasant and not really a complex liquor. The blend of Hanyu and Chichibu flavours makes for a perfect whisky treat and can be served up at intimate gatherings and exciting parties.
