Chichibu Newborn Cask #126

Newborn Cask #126
Japanese Whisky ~ Single Malt
Produced at
Number On Drinks Company Ltd

Dave Broom

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.
Rounded and soft. Clean and well made with some apple, acetone and pineapple. Sweeter than 127 but also more peppery.
Grass and herbs.
Shows that there's complexity. Evidence that Chichibu is one to watch.

Rob Allanson

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