The results of the Malt Maniacs Awards 2015 have just been announced ! This year only two Japanese whiskies have been awarded, and it's neither a Nikka nor a Suntory, but a single malt from the more and more famous Chichibu distillery.
Following the announcement a few weeks ago of the end of Yoichi and Miyagikyo aged versions, Nikka Whisky had already planned their replacement by two new no age statement single malts available from 1 September 2015. But another limited surprise is also planned for September !
A short video presentation of the new single grain The Chita was unveiled by Suntory. In Japanese of course !
These days, the launch of a new Japanese whisky is very good news for all lovers and people who haven't tasted it yet. Suntory just released a brand new single grain called The Chita, the name of the group's grain distillery.
With no less than 13 medals including 8 golden collected during the International Spirits Challenge 2015, Nikka Whisky also won the supreme title of "Distiller of the Year" at the ISC 2015 dinner trophies which took place in London on July 8th.
Yoichi 10, 12, 15 and 20 year old, is this over ? Aged versions of the famous Nikka's peated single malt should formally disappear, and will be the first victims of the old Japanese whiskies stocks depletion.
Results of the International Spirits Challenge 2015 were announced a few days ago ! And Japanese whiskies were once again widely rewarded.
