The now discontinued Hibiki 17 year old, a fantastic Japanese blend, made with aged malt and grain whiskies from Suntory's three distilleries. Spicy and sophisticated. Awarded a Gold 'Editor's Choice' award from Whisky Magazine and received the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010. Hibiki 17 year old is a superb whisky from Suntory and one not to be missed if you get the opportunity!
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.
