Ichiro`s Malt & Grain 505 represents a blended whisky within a series that combines malt whisky from the Chichibu distillery with international counterparts, all undergoing additional maturation at Chichibu.



Thick malt, roasted banana, a bit of sawdust, and sweetness of honey.


Unabashedly Chichibu, with that tell-tale basket of fruits (especially orange and apple) and malty Bourbon cask-aged sweetness. There’s a hint of salt and bitterness in the foreground with vanilla in the background. The abv here makes the edges quite sharp and keeps the heat on.


We close out with a quite dry but hearty handful of oak and nuts. Slight ambiance of sherry as well.
