The Chita Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Chita Reviews

Ingenious Japanese Juice

This is a mighty good all-rounder.
It’s suitable for both sipping and mixing.

By all means this is very japanese.
It has a very floral, sweet nose like some great Speysiders but this is grain and japanese + grain = SWEETNESS squared.

This goes on in the mouth where honey, light chocolate/caramel and citrus. It’s really pleasant and the finish is medium long with a sweet edge.

This is a great summer whisky as it is, but You should try this out:

One long drink glass.
Throw in three good ice cubes.
6cl Chita goes in too.
Top up with neutral club soda or ginger ale/beer.

Well done. One star off for high pricetag.

Easy drinking, not complex.

I was very pleasantly surprised as I am a Single Malt nut!!! And not a particular lover of Japanese Single Malts. I concur more easily with the notes from the Masters of Malt rather than those from the distillers.
My first impression was of smoothness and honey which with a little time melted into a caramel. Orange notes at first but fades quite quickly. A most enjoyable and very drinkable dram but not a long finish. Haven't yet tried it with water much less with ICE!

A great and inexpensive japanese whisky

For the price of 37€ from an airport sale, this is a must-buy. Hot damn what a cracker of a dram. Melons, honey, citrus, confectionary notes. Beautiful

My first foray into Japanese whisky. Won't be my last. Delicate, light and smooth. Recommend, even at the price.

Beautiful.

Pricey but nicey.

This is my first venture into Japanese Whiskeys and I was told this was a good starting point. Light gold in colour with beautiful sweet aromas. Nice and smooth on the palate with sweet honey notes and lingering after. In all its easy afternoon drinking but for price there are better whiskies out there if origin is not a concern.

Light and refreshing

This is a light and somewhat delicate whisky. Slightly sweet and citrus with a longer finish than expected. Very enjoyable to drink and moreish. Feels like spring in a bottle :-)

Easy to drink

First time trying Japanese whisky, very light and easy to drink but nothing special or memorable about the taste. Very similar to Haig club.

Absolutely Love It.

A delightful Dram. Very easy to drink and refreshing. Without a doubt one of the finest Whiskies I have tried.
Highly Recomended.

Easy value

Smooth, easy, sweet (honey) and a bitter finish (‘detergent’) that partly takes away the good. I bought it at the airport for 36€ so I guess thats value (wouldn’t by it again for the listed prices though).

my first grain whisky

agree to all comments above me, its easy to finish a bottle of this

15th October 2017

Smooth and tasty

This is a very fresh easy to drink whisky, very smooth. I'm quite lucky as my publican has a wide and varied range of Japanese whiskies. This is a really easy drink

Fresh n fruity

Very refreshing. Obtained a sample, I guess it's the equivalent of a desert wine. Fresh, fruity, honey, oats and fresh cut flowers. I would certainly be happy to have a full bottle of this. But I have plenty of others above this in a wish list!
