Dave Broom

Nose
Perfumed with a little dried sage/lavender. As with 127, there's a light pear note but also some extra grassiness. A whiff of agave.
Palate
Rounded and soft. Clean and well made with some apple, acetone and pineapple. Sweeter than 127 but also more peppery.
Finish
Grass and herbs.
Comment
Shows that there's complexity. Evidence that Chichibu is one to watch.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Musty in a good way, like an old book. Humidors, cedar wood and fudge.
Palate
Clean and crisp. Hints of coffee and fresh cut wood.
Finish
Short, drying and herbal, then you notice the spice.
Comment
This will be worth watching as it starts to grow up.
