ChitaYou may not have heard of the Chita distillery before. It has been previously nicknamed The Silent Distillery for that very reason - you never really hear that much about it. However, if you’ve tried any of Suntory’s blended whiskies, you’ve tasted whisky from Chita, as that is where the grain portion of the blends come from.
From the House of Suntory Whisky, a mild, smooth single grain whisky with unparalleled sophistication and a clean, clear finish.
Japanese single grain whisky from the Chita distillery, one of the selection of fantastic distilleries owned by Suntory. This is their main expression - a whisky matured in a combination of Sherry, bourbon and (interestingly) wine casks. Good whisky for the summer months.
Nose: Honeydew melon, citrus and honey'd cereal.
Palate: Vanilla sponge cake and more honey. A touch of orchard blossom.
Finish: Medium length, rather zesty.
