Suntory The Chita is a single grain whisky produced out of Suntory's little-known Chita Distillery. Like much grain whisky around the world, a large proportion of the distillery's spirit is created to be used in other whisky blends, and in this instance is an important component in Suntory's acclaimed Hibiki blends. The sole single grain expression from this distillery, it is produced in a different fashion to the spirit destined for Hibiki. The whisky is matured in both Spanish oak and American white oak to bring an extra sophistication and complexity allowing it to take centre stage. Bright gold in colour, on the nose there are aromas of fresh tropical mango, crème brûlée, acacia honey and a little light spice. To taste, there is a rich honey sweetness, more tropical fruit notes and just the merest hint of mint. A clean finish with notes of spice and a subtle bittersweet character.
