our tasting notes

Nose

Lots of soft, ripe fruit. Peaches and apricots that have been sitting in the fruit bowl and plenty of banana and vanilla sweetness too.

Taste

Smooth and sweet with more banana, caramel and toffee. There is an underlying spice with hints of ginger and black pepper that complement the sweetness without ever overpowering it.

Finish

Medium and dry but with vanilla and banana still to the fore.

about

Ichiro Akuto is known as the king of independent Japanese whisky distillers. Having begun his career at Suntory, Ichiro joined his family distillery in Hanyu. After that business was sold, in 2004 he launched Venture Whisky and used it as a platform to bottle leftover Hanyu casks. 

In 2007, he built the Chichibu distillery and the whiskies he has produced since have won awards and acclaim across the world. 

The Ichiro's Malt & Grain is a blend which includes whiskies from his own distillery as well as America, Canada, Ireland, and Scotland. As the label says, it is truly a worldwide whisky. 

Those familiar with the Japanese palate will not be surprised that Ichiro's Malt & Grain is smooth and light. But there are plenty of complex flavours packed in there too. You won’t get them all on the first sip and a dash of water helps to bring them out. 

As Japanese blends go, this is up there with the very best and a fine example of how the science of blending can produce truly unique and special whiskies.

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.
