Nose

Der riecht anders als erwartet. Keine intensive Sherrynase. Eher blumig, leicht, würzig. Blumenwiese, Gummibären, Waldhonig.

Taste

Oh, der Geschmack haut mich aber von den Socken. Das ist schwer zu beschreiben - eine mit Gewürzen überzogene Zuckerstange. Da kommt ganz leicht Vanille, eigentlich kein Sherry. Eher helles Holz.

Finish

Super komplex, der lässt sich in kurzer Zeit nicht analysieren. Trinkt sich ganz hervorragend.

Producers Notes:

Colour: Bronze.
Nose: Raisins, figs and sweet ripe dates with a hint of brazil nut and the sweetness of dark cocoa.
Taste: This mouth filling and rich whisky balances dark sweetness and a pleasant lingering woodiness perfectly - with a long, dark and very rich finish.

The list of awards won by Suntory Hibiki 30yo in recent years is incredible and unmatched by any other whisky. In 2008, Hibiki 30yo picked up the the International Spirits Challenge Trophy for the third time in consecutive years, its fourth win overall. In addition, the blend was also named as World’s Best Blended Whisky at the World Whisky Awards in 2007 and 2008.

QuarterCentury Note
a few years ago
Rare malt whiskies are meticulously selected among Suntory’s most treasured, longest-aging collection, which are carefully examined and blended. This 30-year-old whisky with deep, elegant flavor and aroma added with Japanese grace is filled in a luxurious crystal bottle. Enjoy the smooth flavor, fully body and strong woodiness created by the harmony of sweet scents and fine, flowery fragrance of long-term, sherry matured yamazaki whiskies and other fine aged malts.
