The Chita Japanese Whisky Tasting Notes

43% ABV. This single grain Japanese whisky carries no age statement, but has spent time in bourbon, sherry and wine casks of American white oak and Spanish oak.

Price: £47.30 (Master of Malt)

Tasting Notes

Nose: Corny, creamy and fruity. The corn content hits immediately, along with dried banana chips, sharp apples, raisins and melon rind. Sweet notes of vanilla cream. Like a toasted fruit loaf smothered with melted butter.

Palate: Hobnob oat biscuits, sweet honey and vanilla ice cream. Subtler notes of salted caramel, sesame seeds, mint herbal tea and grape juice.

Finish: Fresh ginger, lemon zest, black pepper and lingering vanilla.

Overall: This dram is reminiscent of a delicate bourbon with added floral notes. I’d say it is an exceptional, distinctive whisky. It is also available for a very reasonable price compared to other Japanese whiskies on the market!
