Malt & Grain Chichibu Blended Whisky 750ml
A lovely blended whisky from Japan, created by Ichiro Akuto, the Japanese whisky extraordinaire. This particular gem is made with both malt and grain whisky from Japan as well as (possibly) some whisky from other countries too - the label describes it as "a worldwide blended whisky". For nearly three centuries, Ichiro Akuto's family brewed sake along the banks of the Tone River in Central Japan. Following the end of World War II, his family received a distiller's license and purchased two second-hand stills from a Scottish distillery. By the turn of the century, however, his father had made the difficult decision to dismantle the stills and sell the 400 casks of remaining whisky that were still maturing in the distillery's rickhouses. Fueled by a belief in the potential for Japanese single malts, Ichiro purchased the casks from his father. Also, Ichiro began studying distillation techniques at Benriach and Springbank Distillery, before returning to Japan and constructing a state-of-the-art distillery in Chichibu. Ichiro's Malt & Grain is blended by the king of independent Japanese distillers: Ichiro Akuto. Ichiro’s blend is a worldwide blended whisky in every sense of the word, a marriage of whiskies from Ichiro’s very own young malt & grain whisky stock, and whiskies from eight other distilleries in Scotland, Canada, England, Ireland and the U.S., which founder Ichiro Akuto refers to as, "the big five." These international whiskies mature for 3-5 years in their home country, and then for an additional 1-3 years in the cool climate of mountainous Japan, which gives this blend incredible character. This whisky is clean on the nose with notes of fruit, vanilla and oak.

About the brand
An extraordinary distillery that is renowned for perhaps the most unique process in all whisky-making, Ichiro's is an "all world whisky" defined by its unusual and expansive approach to blending. Bringing together the house spirit, or Ichiro's Malt, as well as a handpicked selection of Scotch, Irish, Canadian and American varieties, aged between 3 and 5 years, Ichiro's then blends each of them to achieve a perfect balance between sumptuous Japanese whisky and other whiskies of the world. The final result can only be described as a truly complex drinking experience, and the brand has such a strong cult following that it has become the stuff of legend. Based in Chichubu, Ichiro's is a story to tell guests and fellow enthusiasts and a must-have for the eccentric whisky collector.

Taste of ..... caramel and margarine scotch. Slight traces of vanilla. Smell of ..... botanical and natural products Finish is ..... short however deserts toffee notes Adding a little water....doesn't appear to open anything extra for me. In any case it appears to be more congenial and simple to drink in view of the diminished liquor
