Ichiro's

Malt & Grain Blended Whisky

The Chichibu Distillery in Hokkaido Japan is boutique in the extreme with just 14 employees and two small copper pot stills. This whisky is a blend of Japanese material blended with Whiskies sourced from around the world including Canada, the USA, Ireland and Scotland. Typical attention to detail has produced a meticulous blend showing more highland grainy flavours than the peaty west coast flavours of Scotland. If I ever return to Niseko for skiing I will make an attempt to visit this wonderful little distillery in Hokkaido. 46% ABV. — 7 months ago

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Hmmmm...dried prunes, touch of currant and ripe red berries with a sublime undercurrent of grassy earth and forest-y shit. Ate some Hokkaido uni with it. Would eat a whole goddamn tray with a bottle....wait sounds like my weekend plan! — a year ago

Tomo Rouge Red Blend 2018

First experience with Zweigelt. Clean streak of acid and red fruit with some earthy notes on the back end. Needs more time for the acid profile to soften and let the fruit shine through. — 10 months ago
