Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Bar des Embiez at Pernod Ricard Malaysia’s HQ for the launching event of Chivas Regal Mizunara. It is the world’s first Scotch whisky to be selectively finished in sought-after Japanese Mizunara oak casks, and marked a new milestone in innovative whisky-making when it was first unveiled exclusively in Japan in 2013.

“The whisky world is wide and varied, steeped in craftsmanship. Japanese powerhouse whiskies were inspired by Scottish whiskies to begin with. Now we have an instance of paying homage the other way around, a blend inspired with a Japanese influence. To say is its it is an exciting addition to our lineup here in Malaysia is an understatement,” said Benedict Yong, Brand Manager of Pernod Ricard Malaysia during the launching event.

The process of crafting Chivas Regal Mizunara is highly bespoke, involving the introduction of Mizunara oak casks to the finishing process. These casks, crafted from trees indigenous to Japan, are extremely scarce, and renowned for their distinctive porous nature – making whiskies finished in Mizunara casks some of the most coveted amongst whisky blenders and collectors.

Among blenders, Mizunara oak casks are highly respected for 2 main reasons. First, they are incredibly rare; and secondly, once sourced, they present complex challenges for ageing whisky. The porous nature of the oak results in a greater influence of flavour from the casks, meaning the quality of each batch must be meticulously and individually assessed.

However, if the process is mastered, the resulting whisky is truly unique, as showcased by Chivas Regal Mizunara. A new experience within the Chivas Regal range with truly distinctive, luxury blend, and a fitting Scottish tribute to this exceptional Japanese oak.

A blend of the finest single malt and grain whiskies, Chivas Regal Mizunara is rich and fruity on the nose, presenting aromas of pear and orange, while the taste is smooth and rich with honey sweetness and a trace of hazelnut. Mizunara casks are celebrated for imparting a subtle yet distinctive spicy finish, with Chivas Regal Mizunara showcasing this unique influence on the smooth, generous flavour profile of the Chivas house style.
