2014 Chichibu Exceptional Cask BBR (bottled 2021)
Notes from the producer:
'Lush aromas of ripe mango and lime juice drift out of the glass, mingling with spiced custard over apple sponge cake. A little time in the glass brings a chiselled maltiness into play along with a touch of desiccated coconut. The palate is noticeably thick, showing a wonderful mouthfeel. The character is initially of dried malt, but soon develops into fresh citrus fruits, apricot yoghurt and banana bread, with a suggestion of wood smoke on the rear palate. The finish brings spiced crème brûlée, dried apple and a mouth watering note of ripening pineapple. This is a masterclass of Japanese whisky from one of the world's most in-demand distilleries.'
Matured for the full term in a first-fill bourbon barrel.
