Chichibu IPA Cask Finish 2017

Bottled at 57.5% abv, Japanese distiller Chichibu unveiled the Chichibu IPA Cask Finish 2017 in October, with a release of 6,700 bottles. The spirit has been developed in conjunction with an unnamed Japanese craft brewer.

Original barrels from Chichibu were sent to the brewer, which used them to age their beers before returning the “beer-washed” barrels to the original company, which were then filled with whisky for between six months and three years for a period of extra-maturation.
