Chichibu "The First" 3 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whisky Kiuchi No Shizuku Hitachino Nest Distilled White Ale Nikka Whisky Taketsuru 12 Year Old Japanese Pure Malt Whisky

Limited Release: One bottle per customer please.
Chichibu "The First" for the USA is a cask strength, single malt whisky created from eight casks: seven bourbon barrels and one Japanese Mizunara oak barrel. Though only three years old, Chichibu "The First" demonstrates richness and complexity well beyond its youth. The nose is vibrant with sandalwood, rich fruitiness and sweet vanilla , the viscous mouth feel offers succulent, sugary plums, sandalwood and Japanese incense accentuated by herbal notes leading up to a long finish accompanied by oaky vanilla note.

Kiuchi No Shizuku, meaning "first drip from the distillation kettle", is created by distilling Hitachino Nest White Ale and maturing it in oak barrels with the addition of coriander, hops and orange peel for one month. More Hitachino Nest White Ale is added, and then product is distilled again and aged in oak for six months before it is filtered and bottled. The resulting spirit is reminiscent of a Genever, with lovely malt notes, tart citrus fruit, spicy coriander and a light herbal quality. The finish is initially sweet, but dries out with notes of oak and woodsmoke.

Finally available in the US, Nikka Whisky "Taketsuru" 12 Year Old is a remarkable blend of malt whiskies which have been matured for twelve years or more at both the Yoichi and Miyagikyo Distilleries. The nose opens with soft floral aromas which lead to notes of green apple, lemon, cinnamon, brown sugar and licorice, accented by a distant wisp of peat smoke. Balanced notes of baked apple, toffee, almond, custard and nutmeg emerge on the rich, full-bodied palate and merge with hints of cocoa, peat and oak on the creamy finish.

95 Points - Whisky Advocate
Distilled and matured for at least fifteen years at the Yoichi Distillery, Nikka Whisky "Yoichi" 15 Year Old is a long-awaited single malt which has finally reached US shores. The distinctive characteristics of this whisky are attributed to a traditional distillation process, in which pot stills are heated with finely powdered natural coal. The resulting spirit offers a refined nose of orchard fruit, roasted nuts, creamy vanilla and oak, with an undercurrent of smoke. Complex, layered notes of ripe apple, walnut, salted caramel, clove, cinnamon and dark chocolate emerge on the full-bodied palate, with hints of black olive and sea salt lingering through the smokey finish.
