Hibiki is possibly the most sort after blended whisky from the land of the rising sun. This Hibiki 21 takes no prisoner. Sadly disappearing fast and prices are getting out of hands. Sweet, nutty and citrus tone with a soft smoke towards the end. . . . . . . . . . .
Islay is best known as the 'Queen of the Hebrides', famous for its peaty, smoky whiskies. The largest distillery on this island is Caol Ila which produces whisky for single malts and blends. Pronounced 'cull-eela', this distillery is situated on the North Eastern shores of Islay with magnificent views across the Sound of Islay to the spectacular Paps of Jura. In 2018 a single cask was selected from a Scottish warehouse and bottled at cask strength. Presented with no added water, non chillfiltered and in 2019 it was only shipped to Australia. This independent bottling has been hand picked by the Australian importers The Spirits Company and bottled for the Australian market only. The spirit which was distilled at the Caol Ila distillery has been maturing in a 1st fill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead barrel for 9 years. It was picked by Scottish Brand Ambassador Craig Merson from a number of casks at the Edradour Distillery in the bonded warehouses of Signatory Vintage. This bottling has been bottled at natural cask strength 57.2% abv. Our Tasting Notes Nose: When first poured there’s a wonderful medicinal aroma, new plastic unsealed from a packet. As the air starts to work its way into the whisky there’s stone fruits, fresh pear and freshly cut grass. White pepper and smoke seem luscious and inviting. Palate: First thought is creamy with vanilla, some tobacco and dried pears. The smoke coats the palate and the oils start to work on the finish. Finish: There’s salty bacon, buttery vanilla and maritime complexity. Looking for a unique gift to give on Father's Day, then look no further.
