Chichibu The Floor Malted 2009 3YO 50.5% abv

Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:

Chichibu The Floor Malted 2009 3YO 50.5% abv
Nose: Shy it's not. Big notes of fermenting pears, cookie dough, pine needles, eucalyptus, soap flakes, malt soaked timber, tinned peaches, kiwi fruit and menthol.
Palate: Intensely malty. Czech pilsner, cornflake cookies, muesli bars, pine, menthol. Also brings back memories of walking past the yakitori stalls in the alleyways along the north west side Shinjuku station. Quite oily. An unusual but appealing profile.
Finish: Actually a bit short considering the bold nose and palate. Mostly follows the palate with some added lime.
Like the Chichibu The First this one is very good at only 3 years old. You can just sense the care that goes into these hand crafted whiskies.
