Old bottling of Hibiki 17. More matured and richer taste (more plums) compared to the newer bottlings. There exist a plenty of different bottlings. I still adore the very first Hibiki bottlings (without age statement written on the label) the most, but this 17 is fantastic. If you are unsure about the Hibiki version, check the box. The older ones come in beige, yellow or golden boxes, the new ones all have purple boxes.

Sehr weicher, ausgeglichener Blend, bei dem es einiges zu entdecken gibt. Fruchtig im Aroma, viel Vanille, sehr komplex, ein Kunstwerk...

Color
Burnished
Nose
Pale cream sherry, double cream, honeycomb, something nutty?
There is also raisin and faint hints of dark coffee.
Taste
Spicy cherry with some coffee, toffee and hints of blackcurrant.
After a while I get rich treacle tart.
Finish

Not too long but its smooth

Comments
  I like it as its very easy to drink but too expensive for what it is.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Very floral and fruity, warm, delicate and inviting. Almonds, vanilla, mango, pineapple, pear, soft spices and fresh wood.

Taste

Creamy, rounded and perfectly balanced. Honey, vanilla, delicate wood, a hint of earthiness with mushrooms and wet stones.

Finish

Quite short, on a note of spices and vanilla.

Comments

A classic that does not disappoint.
