A 50cl bottle of Suntory's excellent Hibiki 12yo, the starting point of the Hibiki range. It's a fantastic example of a Japanese style blended whisky: sweet and perfumed. Along with grain from Chita and malt from Yamazaki they use some whisky matured in plum wine casks in the mix.

Lovely and sweet with faint smell and taste of almonds. Not a whiskey buff but this will always have a place on my shelf. Came through this morning (19th Dec) and can't see it lasting till new year. 'nuff said.

A beautiful whisky extreemly smooth and wonderfully complex could not ask for more. I wasnt a fan of blended whisky until I tried this, I'll admit I only bought this to enter the competition to win the 30 year old but so glad I did it gave me a great excuse to try my first japanese whisky and I am going to be ordering a bottle of the 17 year old next pay day.

Great taste from a non whisky aficionado.
Great reviews at Tokyo airport on this one.
