The 2020 and third release of Chichibu's London Edition.
Chichibu distillery in Saitama, Japan was opened in 2008, and was the country’s first new distillery since Suntory opened Hakushu back in 1973. Chichibu was the brainchild of Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the legendary Hanyu distillery. The Ichiro’s Malt brand appeared in 2005 and rose to fame through the bottling of the last casks from Hanyu, particularly the sought after ‘Card’ series. The first Chichibu releases appeared under it in 2011.
The whisky is a vatting of seven casks: ex-bourbon, refill ex-peated and casks which have had their heads replaced with Japanese Mizunara oak. No age statement is declared but Chichibu state that the whisky is between 6 to 8 years old.
This is one of 1,736 bottles produced.
