Color
Amber
Nose

Helder, zoetig, fris, complex, intens, bloemig, fruitig, mout suikers, vanille, milde bananen en ananas tonen, Creme brûlée, Vers gebakken donuts, goed gebalanceerde eiken, Peren snoepjes en pruimen. Al met al een prachtige geur die de kwaliteit van deze whisky goed weergeeft.

Taste

Complex, intens, zacht, fris, Creme brûlée, cake, vanille, fino sherry, bloemige tonen van rozen en lelies, zacht zoete eiken. Een zeer goed gebalanceerde blend. Ze hebben hier enorm goed hun best gedaan om een prachtige compositie te maken met alleen maar top kwaliteit whiskies.

Finish

lange complexe, licht zoete, kruidige en aangename afdronk. Niets domineert maar is zeer goed gebalanceerd.

Comments
Een prachtige goed gebalanceerde kwaliteitswhisky. Dat had ik niet verwacht van een blended whisky. Ik vindt vaak de graan component in een blent te dominant en te bitter. Maar de graan whisky die ze hier gebruiken is zacht, zoet en noterig. De graan whisky voegt hier echt iets toe. Al met al een zeer goede whisky die ik zeer kan aanbevelen aan zowel beginnende als gevorderde whisky drinkers.

Lovely light whisky, remarkably drinkable. Lacking the long lasting finish of older Hibikis but the initial taste is spectacular. Price has gone up a lot recently but still great value.

Nez frais, sur la céréale, bouche à l'avenant, c'est simple, un peu court mais pas mal fait.

Wonderful addition to the Japanese whisky line. When I first tried this I had know idea about what to expect and was quite surprised how good it was. Would be nice to see an 18 year old come out soon.

Remember it\'s maturity that makes whisky great! That\'s why I Love The Glenrothes! Signature Picture
