Hibiki 12. Image courtesy Suntory. This is a thick and oily dram with a light amber color. The nose is light and dry, with notes of nutmeg and dried grass. The taste is thick, chewy, and spicy, with cinnamon and black pepper notes along with a slight herbal touch on the back of the throat. The finish is herbal and slightly minty.
