The single malt Chichibu "On the Way" is the first 5 year old whisky of the small distillery founded in 2008 in the Saitama area by Ichiro Akuto. Incredibly complex despite its young age, it surprises by its both rich and creamy texture, and develops woody aromas, apple pie, rhubarb and notes of nutella .
For this new version bottled in 9900 copies, Ichiro Akuto used young whiskies aged in bourbon barrels but also one of its oldest single malts aged for 5 years in Mizunara cask, the rare and precious japanese oak giving typical woody aromas.
Despite its high alcohol volume of 58.5 %, the Chichibu "On the Way" is not a " cask strength " (bottled at natural strength of the barrel), it is non chill filtered and diluted very little to maintain all its so seductive aromas. With his young distillery, Ichiro Akuto is now a third leader in japanese whisky market and his surprisingly mature whiskies are gaining in notoriety and quality each year.
