Hibiki Blender's Choice
Nose : Dried hay grass: it is smokey, floral, and savory all at once. There is a kind of sweet and spice that I associate with the memory of late summer sun dried hay bails.
Palate : Pressed ginger juice spiced with cinnamon started this dram off with a kick. At turns more savory notes come out; leather, iodine, black pepper corns. A sort of cheese-umami funk that provides excellent depth of flavor and richness.
Finish : Lovely long finish; rich like a piece of tender steak that just melts in your mouth— a bit of molasses sweetness is eventually all that’s left behind.
