Michael,
Smooth and a favorite but for some reason it leaves me still searching for something more. It's great, just... maybe too smooth. Nice and complex, though.

Strong flavor with strong smoke. Compare to an Islay... Good undertones, just not a fan of smoke

Outstanding whiskey more peppery than spiral indicated mellows quite nicely with drop of water. A luxury well worth the price!

Wasn't overly smoky as some others that I have had, proper level of smokiness for me!

Landis,
It's right up there with the 17 year old. Different blend that goes down easy. I didn't understand how one could enjoy whisky before the Hibiki line. Lol, it's been my gateway drink to other brands and blends.

I love the smooth flavor of this whisky. I look forward coming home, pour a glass and just relaxing on the couch sipping away.

The best thing I have had in my mouth to date!
Hibiki 17 Year Old
Landis,
One of the greats! My first bottle lasted about a month. Had I known it's popularity was going to explode I would have bought more and put them under lock and key. It's a rare find at most bars in the US & Japan.

Jeanne,
One of my favorites. Splash of cold water works well with this.

Bite on the back end and left me feeling warm. I liked the 12 year better than the the 1st edition but liked it better than the 17 year

Jon,
Tastes very similar to Breckenridge, has a nice floral finish, excellent.
Hibiki 12 Year Old
Anthony,
This was the first Japanese whisky I ever tasted, and one that brought me into the world of whisky. This is now on my top 5 best! Nose: Fruity, with orange, apples, plums and honey. Thick sweet and a touch of cinnamon. Palate: Soft, with almonds & pecans up front. More fruit, and hints of cinnamon and clove. You get the warmth of the spice that is evident from the oak. Finish: Medium finish, with sweetness and fruit topped off with a slight spice. I was in a small liquor store recently, and they had two bottles (dusty) on the shelf. I asked how much: $45 USD!!! I then asked if they had any in the back, as I was planning on buying all they had. Walked home with 2 bottles to my collection.

Really smooth and sweet. Little bit of water is fine, but preferably enjoy it neat & chilled.

The unicorn. Probably my number one whiskey overall. If you see a bottle under 400 bucks anywhere buy it.

Morgan,
i am picky when it comes to a good drink. This one I loved. There is silk like smoothness to it. The rich under tones, with the lightness, mild sweet taste and the hint of smokiness are like a nice summer day by the campfire
Hibiki 17 Year Old
Andy,
The only expensive whiskey I've drank so far that I'd classify as worth it.
Hibiki 21 Year Old
