Summer dramming with #chichibu On the Way 2015. There's a fair bit of heat on the tongue due to its young age but a mixture of bourbon and mizunara casks has created a variety of fruity flavours - 🍍 🍑 and 🍐. Water pushes the heat to the side and brings out toffee and some dried leaves and 🍎 (think leaves at the bottom of an orchard). This is the only bottle of Chichibu that it has been relatively easy to get hold of in the U.K. for the past 18 months. Apart from one single cask bottle for Whisky Exchange there has been very little to hit our shores. Haven't given up hope that the Peated 2016 will appear soon.
This captures nearly everything good in life 👌

Im celebrating the international whisky day in company of my two Samurai.
They led my taste to the Nikka Tsuru 17 a japanese blended whisky that offers rich fruity notes coupled with dark chocolates and honey finishing and i paired it with a Bolivar Gold Medal with dominant spicy earthy and leathery aromas. Sliante
Chichibu Distillery is out in the hills down some old school train tracks from Tokyo. They make some of the best whiskey in the world. Thanks to Shu Misawa San for the candid and informative experience. We'll do you proud, and hope to host you soon!
