Ichiro's - Malt and Grain World Blended Whiskey
These casks personally sourced from around the globe by Ichiro Akuto are carefully blended with local Japanese stocks and matured a further 1-3 years at Chichibu. The blending takes place in two 5000L wooden barrels built by French cooper Taransaud. Non-chill filtered and non-coloured.
The nose is a tapestry of peach, vanilla, lychen, barley and lemon, woven with some finer threads of wood varnish, straw and banana. Light and crisp is the palate, bringing together lemon squash, chestnuts, straw, barley, vanilla, banana, chili, toffee and pineapple. A lingering farewell of toffee, lemon, tobacco, bran and banana leaves you feeling like you have just had a warm, passionate encounter with someone very special.
