As its name suggests, Ichiro’s Malt & Grain is a blend of young malt and grain whiskies from the Hanyu distillery, the legacy of Ichiro, the grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery.

Bottled at 46° without cold filtration, this Blend imposes its typically Japanese character, rich, with fine spicy and woody aromas with a nice balance.

Chichibu distillery, located in Saitama prefecture, north of Tokyo, is owned by Venture Whisky, a Japanese whisky producer under the Ichiro’s Malt brand.

In 2007, Ichiro Akuto, the grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery, started a new chapter in Japan's whisky history by building Chichibu distillery.

Situated about 70km north-west of Tokyo, production began in February 2008.

The equipment includes a small mill, a mash tun, washbacks  made of Jpanese oak (mizunara) and a pair of small copper stills manufactured by Forsyths of Rothes, Scotland.

Several different casks types are used, including Bourbon barrels, Sherry butts and Hogsheads, all matured in a traditional Dunnage style warehouse.

Enhanced by their environment, Chichibu whiskies are non-chill filtered and not coloured.

Nose: fruity with notes of peach, apricot, citrus zest and bananas. There are also notes of malt, caramel and vanilla cream.

Taste: toffee with notes of barley malt, gingerbread, tropical fruits, pipe tobacco, black pepper and freshly cut hay.

Finish: medium length with vanilla and tropical fruits.
