✅The Hibiki 17 years is an interesting whisky Due to its richness and quality, most of the people mistake it as a single malt rather than a blend.
It is made from whiskies coming from other Suntory distilleries around Japan.
These are Yamazaki (Single Malt), Hakushu (Single Malt) and Chita (Grain whisky) Pretty exiting combination isn't 😁.
Another beautiful aspect of this whisky is the 24-sided bottle (decanter) 👌that
distinguishes the Hibiki 17 and it represents the number of hours in a day as well as the number of seasons in the traditional Japanese lunar calendar.
Even the label is handmade from precious echizen paper 👌.
Bottled at 43% ABV.
🥃 Aroma: Orange peels, honey, smokey char, plums, lots of toffee and butterscotch, it is a solid complex aroma
🥃 Taste / Palate: Orange marmalade, tropical fruits, toffee and butterscotch, wood/oak, sweet vanillin and hint of spiciness, very well balanced on the palate👍
🥃 Finish: Remarkably long with toffee and butterscotch sweetness balanced with bitter oakyness and touch of cinnamon 👍
✨Conclusion: One of the finest examples of Japanese approach to whisky making, anyone lucky enough to get their hands on a bottles or a glass they will definitely want more ✅🥃🥃🥃✅
