An absolutely stunning release from Hibiki. This was awarded the Trophy at the International Spirits Challenge in 2004, 2006 and 2008. It was also awarded the coveted title World's Best Blended Whisky at the World Whiskies Award in 2007 and 2008.
Tasting notes: There are hot aromas of cinders, rich and sweet fruit aromas of ripe apricots and marmalade, an iodine-infused stony aroma, and green forest smells that subtly emerge. In the mouth: This enters the mouth with a slightly sweet flavor, before filling the midpalate with intense richness.
