SUNTORY HIBIKI 17 YEAR JAPANESE WHISKY (750 ML)
Suntory's Hibiki 17 received its 15 minutes of fame as the whisky Bill Murray promoted in "Lost in Translation," but that's hardly all that makes it special. This supple whisky from the Honshu region of Japan is immediately appealing. Awarded "Editor's Choice" from Whisky Magazine. Tasting notes from Master of Malt: "Nose: Quite full. There are notes of honey and wax, resin and oak. There are notes of gentle smoke and cacao, hints of cooked fruit and a nutty note. Palate: Sweet and rich. There are crisp notes of mixed peels, raisin and custard with a little zest and plenty of oak. Finish: Long with notes of oak and cocoa and sherried peels."
