The Bottle

Ichiro’s Malt Chichibu The Peated 2022 is a peated single malt whiskey produced at the Chichibu distillery. The malt is dried using peat during the malting process, which gives it a strong smoky character. Sweet, light custard cream, fruity as it glides across the surface. The aroma spreads on the palate.
It is reminiscent of soft black tea, and the overall impression continues to change with time.
Bottled non-chill filtered and naturally colored to allow you to enjoy the character of the original.
The complex aftertaste, which gently echoes the robust character of the original, can be enjoyed over time.

Our Take

It is a smoky, fruity, creamy whiskey on par with Laphroaig and Ardbeg.

The image of vanilla, cream, and plum-like fruitiness follows the smoky flavors.

Compared to past Chichibu The Peated, it has a stronger overall sweetness such as rich vanilla and banana.

Recommended drinking: straight, toasted up, or on the rocks. Please enjoy it with the image of extending the strong flavor just a little.

Ichiro’s Malt Chichibu The Peated 2018 and Ichiro’s Malt Chichibu The Peated 2016 are also available at BAR Shinkai. Please try and compare them.
