  1. ThorstenH scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    You have to know what you have here. No Sherry Monster, no Bourbon fruit bomb, no Islay ash. But a very fine balanced Japanese whisky. From my point of view, prices should not have any influence on the rating.
    Just tried the Redbreast 27 and noticed some similarities.
    86-90 – Wow, really good one, need a bottle

      An interesting nose, with notes of grass, green fruits and nougat and praline.

      Pleasantly tasty. The nose continues here. Alcohol well integrated. Very good to drink.
    • Finish

      Medium finish. The grassy notes dominate here. Too bad that the sweetness is lost a bit.

    A nicely balanced and smooth Hibiki. The maturation is not very intense, but cherry notes still come through.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Complex nose, with hints of chocolate/ mochi/ pralines, some floral notes with plumb and peach.
    • Taste
      93 93
      The taste is lovely, an interesting palate. Intense cherry flavor, almost like cherry pie, sweetness, rich. Very well rounded, honey and pair notes. Mellow and smooth.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Almost refreshing, lingering and lasting for quite a while.

    An OK bottling. It boggles my mind how people can pay such prices for it. I feel generous in giving it 80 points.

    Appearance: Golden amber.

    Nose: Fruity, bright, Hibiki! Spicy, mizunara, prunes, citrus, vanilla, caramel.

    Palate: Sweet caramel and vanilla, honey, apple, mizunara spice, crème anglaise.

    Finish: Vanilla cream, spice, pepper, honey.

    Overall: Huge vanilla cream flavor approaches the old 17 y.o. Nice mizunara too, though less than the old 17. Shows Hibiki character well. Very spicy and rich.
