Hibiki Japanese Harmony Masters Select
I've not experienced as many Japanese whiskies as I would have liked to thus far so when the opportunity arose to get some of this Hibiki I jumped at the chance.
I've tried both the 12 and 17 year old Hibiki's in the past and enjoyed both of them so I was really quite excited about trying Travel Retail exclusive version of this dram.
This isn't as fulfilling as the 12 or 17 year olds but it's got some lovely sweet notes and a lactic note with yoghurt covered raisins. I could easily drink a fair amount of this.
I still prefer the 12 and 17 year old drams but this is still very drinkable.
Sweet gentle and floral, sugar coated almonds with floral gums and gentle light syrup, wood sap and light fresh oak spices, touches of yoghurt covered raisins, shloer white grape juice,
Spiced plums and syrup, white grape juice, wood sap, more of th yoghurt you raisins, there's an oilyness on the palate also
Grape juice and hints of spiced plums.
