Chichibu The Peated

Country: Japan
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Number One Drinks Co.
ABV: 50.5%
Score: 91 points

Ichiro Akuto is working wonders with his young Chichibu malts. This one is only three years old, but the nose has a subtle smokiness and mild creosote, licorice, and a briny touch, but none of them overpower subtle orange peel, coconut, and vanilla notes. The taste has a peaty wave that rolls in to a nice peak with a good balance of allspice, vanilla, and coconut cream pie notes. The finish is smooth and spicy.
