The Chichibu distillery "Japan Warrior Series Number One" Cask #2369 is an incredibly rare release of only 265 bottles worldwide in an exquisite wooden gift box.

This highly-anticipated release was distilled in 2009 after which maturation occurred in a Sherry Puncheon until June 2013.  From there, the whisky was transferred to a white wine barrel of a famous French wine estate (whose name is not able to be disclosed).

After a further four years of maturation, the whisky was bottled in February 2017.

Floral and grassy, with notes of white wine, grapefruit, and young peaches on the palate, and a wonderful creamy mouthfeel.

Be one of only a handful to experience a Chichibu single cask release, which is a very rare commodity these days.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Fresh, delicate notes of wine, young peach, lime blossom.

Palate: At first slightly floral and grassy, efore the wine aromas dominate in combination with peaches and mirabelle plums. With a little bit of water, mountain redcurrants appear, with the added bitterness of young grapefruit. The whisky produces a very oily, creamy mouthfeel.

Finish: Long and oily, sweet, delicate syrup menthol with the fresh bitterness of grapefruit. Finally, some traces of green tea.
