Very perfume nose with different kind of potpourri, Deeper in cooked fruits, plums, blackberry, tropical fruits like ripe banana and sweet molten caramel. Some white chocolate and sandalwood and oak.
Very floral and does have some complexity with flavors of sandalwood, honeycomb, vanilla, white chocolate, dried apricot and a wisp of smoke and some Mizunara (Japanese oak) bitterness.
Long, rich but dry and a bitter aftertaste with incense and smoke aroma and acetone notes.
A enjoyable Hibiki with lots of everything. But unfortunately for the price its doesn't give you the complexity you would expect from a 21 year old.
