our tasting notes

Nose

Starts like a sweet delicate vanilla that then quickly turns into a tart bouquet of orange and apple, similar to an Australia Sauv Blanc. Pretty unique. That eventually tones down to a warm hug combination of creamy toffee, pear and plum.

Taste

Very similarly to the nose, the first sip starts off like a very delicate vanilla with a tease of sweet tropical fruit and flowers.That gradually learns to more of a hazelnut-like vanilla/ginger bomb, gradually building in spiciness with whispers pepper and peat.

Finish

Long and oily. Honey and pepper remain on the palate in a warming finish, perfect for the evening.

about

Made up of an "International Blend" of Canadian, Scottish and American Whiskies, with a base of Japanese Chichibu. This is an international collaboration that clearly worked for the best.

Ichiro Akuto is arguably the king of independent Japanese distillers, despite working out of an exceptionally modest premise with just two small pot stills in Chichibu, a town 100 km northwest of Tokyo. Despite this, Akuto’s single malts have consistently won rave reviews and achieved significant milestones.

Smooth

If you are japanese whiskey fan.. this should be in your stockcomparing to yamazaki, this introduces different (more herbal?) flavor and texture..very smooth as expected, and just so tasty and easy to enjoy.

Impressive.

Kilchoman pulls it out the bag again with Sanaig, an excellent whisky at a very reasonable price point - if I blind-tasted this I would swear it was an intensely rich, deep version of Bowmore. Taste profile leans quite towards the sherry side, making this a lip-smacking sherry monster. After an hour could still taste this.
