Tasting Notes

Ichiro’s Malt & Grain blends Scotch, Canadian rye, American whiskey, and Irish whiskey with Ichiro’s own Japanese single malts aged up to 10 years. Each of the sourced world whiskies were aged between 3–20 years in their countries of origin before being brought to the Chichibu Distillery in Saitama, Japan, for 2–3 years of additional aging. The resulting blend displays apricot, popcorn toffee, Meyer lemon zest, and vanilla cream which transition to a lightly textured palate of toffee, roasted chestnut, and gingerbread with a peppery, honeyed finish. Bottled without additives or coloring, Ichiro’s Malt and Grain is crafted to balance a heart of Japanese whisky with the complementary nuances of global whiskies, providing a world of depth to contemplate with each sip. In Ichiro’s words, this is an “An All-World Whisky.” Non-chill filtered; 46.5% ABV (may vary slightly batch to batch).
