As you know Chichibu is still a new distillery and thus its stock of whisky is very young. So far I have tasted the Newborn Heavily Peated and the Newborn Double Matured both excellent and surprisingly flavorful for such young whiskies. Well a new Newborn (can it get any newer?) has been released. This time they use a Mizunara cask – Japanese Oak. I have enjoyed many other Japanese whiskies that used Mizunara Casks and look forward to trying this new Chichibu release. It is being sold in Japan for ~4,400 Yen (~$55 US – Damn exchange rate!).
