Hibiki 17yr Whisky Review
One of my all time favourite whiskies, at the right price.
Eye: Golden amber.
Nose: Cherries, seriously. Sweet floral notes with hints of vanilla, honey and malt. One of the most refined I have experienced, layer upon layer of such well balanced fragrances.
Palate: Waxy stewed fruits with a big floral hit. Cherries are present. Such a great mouthfeel.
Finish: Long and malty with refined fruits and a gorgeous sweetness. Takes you away to Japan.
Age: 17yr's old
I could nose this stuff for hours. A top notch dram that is in far too short a supply, and is significantly overpriced for what it offers.
