The Japanese characters for the skylark (hibari), the much-loved herald of spring in the East and West, and for this masterfully blended whisky.
Like the clear, exquisite song of a small bird, it features an agreeably pure, mellow flavour. Carefully selected unprocessed whiskies and pure, natural spring water are expertly blended to create this distinctive whisky. This was the vision of Tenjaku Master Blender, Kenji Watanabe.
Faint smoky accent. Sweet aroma, redolent of pear and dried fruit.
A slightly edgy attack. Well-rounded and mellow.
Slightly spicy. A long finish with a hint of white oak and a spreading sweetness.
This is a pleasant, balanced sipper.
