There are few awards in the world of whisky that Suntory's Hibiki 17 Year Old hasn't won. It is simply iconic. A Japanese blended whisky made with aged malt and grain whiskies from Chita, Yamazaki and Hakushu. If you're lucky enough to try this, expect cinnamon, cherry, hazelnut and toffee; a true delight.
Nose: Quite fruity: plums and a touch of cherry. Oak and grains and some shy sherry notes in the background.
Palate: Very light and mostly dry. The wood influence appears quickly
Finish: Drying with the oak tannins holding court.
‘This whisky is a masterclass in harmony. Matured in Japanese Mizunara Oak casks, Hibiki 17 is as gorgeously packaged as it is tasty.’ – Tori
