Chichibu On The Way is the work in progress of Ichiro Akuto. He founded his distillery in 2008 at the foot of a mountain in the region of Saitama, and he is on the way to release his first 5 years old whisky.
The current Chichibu On The Way is a vatting of three casks:
one Mizunara oak hogshead filled in 2008, in fact this was the second oldest cask in the distillery
one American oak ex-bourbon barrel filled in 2009 (used for ‘The Floor Malted’ batch 2009
another American oak ex-bourbon barrel filled in 2010 (used for ‘The Floor Malted’ batch 2010
Although the packaging says five years old, this refers to the oldest whisky in the vatting – Japanese rules are different from Scottish. Despite its high alcohol volume, it is not entirely cask strength.
