Description

An early note of mine…

“A splendid blend, made with aged malt and grain whiskies from Suntory’s three distilleries. Awarded a Gold Editor’s Choice award from Whisky Magazine and was awarded a category prize at the 2010 World Whisky Awards”.

And an equally early review from the legendary Dave Broom, “Toffee sweetness stretches along the palate. Very clean and clear. Sweet with sultana and cherry. Long and silky. Relaxed and laid back. This is excellent blending. Score: 8.5 / 10.”

And a more recnt review from Conssr, “Quite a thin mouthfeel. Arrival and development is all fruit oranges and plums. Some bees wax. And more plums. I’ve never picked up plums in a whisky as much as I have with this Hibiki.  Finish is reasonably long, more fruit, some bolied sweets and bonfire toffee and has the barest, barest whispering of smoke. Overall: Is it the greatest whisky ever? No. Is it worth the huge sums people shell out for a bottle now? Of course not. But it was a beautifully balanced whisky and still the best Japanese whisky I’ve ever tasted”.
