This is Chichibu under the Ichiro’s Malt banner. Don’t know who Prineus are but they have good tastes.
Colour: orange-y amber.
Nose: it’s not unusual that casks that have naturally dropped under 50% when still very young would be very good. It seems that that’s the case here. Wonderful fruit breads, raisins, dough, copper, dried dates, and fresh cinnamon rolls. Absolutely love fresh cinnamon rolls – but who doesn’t?
Mouth: of course. No red wine and presto, success! Wonderful breads, spices, pastries, dried fruits, and a good dollop of walnut wine.
Finish: rather long, and even more on cinnamon rolls. One ought to start a Friends of Cinnamon Rolls on Facebook (before someone jails Zuck).
Comments: it’s not only very good, it’s also very smart. You can’t do much better at just, what, 5 years of age? Scandalously excellent.
