Ichiro Single Malt Japanese Whisky US 2018 Edition
Dat,
This rating is for the Paris 2018 edition, although the title is for the US 2018 edition (wrong titled reference). I was expecting more out of this bottle given the huge price tag (over $1000 for this Paris edition), but luckily I got this sample via the Chichibu sampling kit (thank you for the Vault selection, Uncle Flaviar). The first thing I noticed was how similar this compares to the Kurayoshi 8 year old. It did not leave me with a sense of wanting more. I'll stick to my Nikka from the Barrel, thank you very much.

One of the best whiskeys I have ever had!
Ichiro's Malt Chichibu Port Pipe Finish 2009 Single Cask No. 1921
Bries,
Eye: tiger’s eye, bronze, ruddy brown, saddle brown, amber. Translucent. Palate: a hint of honey, vanilla, a subtle whiff of woody spice. Nose: Cherry heering, musky sherry, and quite an aromatic bite that warms, cleanses, & lingers.

Ichiro's Malt Chichibu IPA Cask Finish 2017 Release
Antti,
Ichiro's Malt Chichibu IPA Cask Finish 2017 Release is an outstanding, intense, Japanese Single Malt Whisky by the Hanyu Distillery; matured in a bourbon barrel before being finished in an IPA barrel; with an outrun of 6700 bottles. For this 2017 IPA Cask Finish, the distillery worked together with Japanese beer brewers (like Shigakogen). The brewers were granted wooden casks from Chichibu for aging their IPA in & after that Chichibu finished this whisky for a couple of months. It has a sweet life with notes of oak, smoke & honey; while life adds notes of hoppy bitterness, lemon zest & malt; that leads to a long & complex death with notes of pear, apple pie & cereal.
Ichiro's Malt Chichibu 2010 Chibidaru (Tasting Sample)
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, 4 year old, single malt Japanese whisky; the name "Chibidaru" means "cute casks" in Japanese! It has a spicy birth with notes of pear apple pie & smoke; while life adds notes of citrus peel, cereal, syrup & coffee; that leads to a sweet death of medium length with notes of oak, vanilla, ginger, & spiced orange.

This is one of my favorite whiskies. Very complex with a great finish.

Ryan,
Very drinkable Japanese whiskey, but for the price, didn't stand out relative to Hibiki or Toki or some of the other "light" Japanese whiskeys. For less money, I would keep drinking Nikka whiskeys, especially the Coffey Malt

Anthony,
nose: butterscotch upfront, vanilla cream soda, apricots, some banana, really creamy palate: thick creamy mouthfeel, vanilla and some fruit, honey and tobacco finish: medium finish, vanilla lingers, still creamy, slight spice, small amount of peat overall: really solid drink, the creamy taste and mouthfeel goes well with the fruity aspect of the drink. easy drinker, competes well with the suntary lines
