Chichibu 2011 Single Imperial Stout Cask #5577 / TWE

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.

This whisky was distilled in 2011 and aged in Imperial Stout cask #5577. It was bottled at cask strength in 2020 and made exclusive to spirit merchants, The Whisky Exchange.

One of 224 bottles.
