    DESCRIPTION

    This Chita Single Grain Whisky was made with diverse unblended whisky brewing techniques and master craftsmanship developed over many years at the Chita Distillery in Aichi Prefecture. It features a light taste and delicately sweet fragrance.

    TASTING NOTES

    • Colour: pale gold, ripe corn.

    • On the nose: lovely fresh, tropical sweetness to this. Mango juice. Lemon meringue pie. Then comes the normal syrupy sweetness one associates with grain. Solvent, fizzy sweets – Love Hearts. Sticky toffee pudding.

    • In the mouth: excellent chewy yet light texture. It’s like eating dessert out on the porch in the summer sun. All of the nose comes through cleanly: again, tropical juices, almost like some mango-based cocktail. Limes. Grappa. And then come the sugars: light honey. Gentle wood spices drawn out for the finish, with just the slightest hint of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.
