Just read on-line that the Hibiki 12 and 21 have been awarded gold medals at The International Spirts Challenge 2015.
I’m a big fan of the Hibiki blend. It’s without doubt my favourite of all the Japaneese whiskies I’ve tried. It’s fresh, distinctive and easy drinking.
Yes, I know it’s a blend and they are supposed to be middle of the road and suitable for all palates but this does that whilst at least retaining some character.
It also comes in a very groovy bottle.
I’m planning on putting up proper tasting notes in the future as soon as I source a bottle.
