Product Description

The first ever single grain Whisky from the Chita distillery which has been matured in a combination of Sherry, Bourbon and Wine casks.

This is normally blended with The yamazaki and Hakushu single malts for the Hibiki range of Blends, so interesting to finally see this released as a single grain in the UK.

92.5 Points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

Nose: Melon and ginger, fresh cereal, coconut, lemon drizzle cake, runny honey, summery floral notes.

Palate: Honey nut wheat cereal, vanilla biscuits, flaked almonds, white nougart, ripe galia melon, pear drops, quite an oily/waxy body and very aromatic and fresh.

Finish: Aromatic blossom honey, vanilla toast, marzipan, waxy lemon, dried apricot, coconut and lime cordial.

Very fresh and aromatic summer breeze of a whisky, the dashi (as they say in Japan) grain that goes into the award winning Hibiki blends and great to try this on its own as a single grain.

Would make a lovely Mizuwari cocktail (big shot of whisky over ice and topped up with soda or tonic water with some fresh mint)
