Not matching up to the others tonight. The Hibiki’s are crushing. That said. Now trying in a highball and it is dominating over the Nikka in the Barrel — a year ago

"Komagatake" Aged 24 Years Single Malt Bourbon Barrel Japanese Whisky

Gorgeous tawny color. Aromas of nail varnish, cherry liquor, vanilla bean, coconut, hazelnut, brandy, quince, and dried fig. Mouthfeel is voluptuous. Flavors echo the nose plus additional smoky notes, cherry pie, and subtle ginger, coriander, and licorice spices. Long, unctuous finish. Wonderful 24 year expression from Mars! — 8 years ago
