Ichiro's Malt | Double Distilleries - 2021 Chichibu x Komagatake
Ichiro's Malt Double Distilleries Chichibu X Komagatake sees the Chichibu Distillery collaborate with the Mars Shinshu distillery. Mars Shinshu is Japan's highest whisky distillery, at 798 meters ― just over 2,600 feet ― nestled between Japan’s Southern and Central Alps. Mars Shinshu is owned by the Hombo family, who have been in the business of distillation for over a century.
The nose is sweet with caramel, tropical fruit, and old oak notes. You'll find toffee and fruit on the pleasantly sweet palate with pineapple and a touch of ripe banana, culminating in a fruity finish with hints of brine.
