Chichibu 2009 Malt Dream Cask 10 Year Old #554 / Ghost Series #12
Chichibu distillery in Saitama, Japan was opened in 2008, and was the country’s first new distillery since Suntory opened Hakushu back in 1973. Chichibu was the brainchild of Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the legendary Hanyu distillery. The Ichiro’s Malt brand appeared in 2005 and rose to fame through the bottling of the last casks from Hanyu, particularly the sought after ‘Card’ series. The first Chichibu releases appeared under it in 2011.
Distilled in 2009, matured in bourbon barrel #554, and bottled in November 2019 at 10 years old.
This is the twelfth in the Ghost Series, a selection of rare Japanese whiskies from former Nonjatta chief editor, Stefan Van Eycken.
Each bottle in the collection features a Yukiyo-e artwork from Yoshitoshi's New Forms of 36 Ghosts.
One of only 157 bottles.
