Chivas Regal Mizunara was originally released for the Japanese market. A part of the whiskey which is used has matured for the manufacture of this blend on Mizunara barrels made from Japanese oak. This is a nice addition to the traditional character of Chivas Regal whiskey. Odor: soft fruit, toffee, vanilla and nuts. Taste: well balanced between floral notes, sweets and spices. Aftertaste: fruity with hints of anise.
