Clear, golden amber.
Sandalwood, freshly sawn oak, potpourri, pine needles and woody rosemary with faint passion fruit, zesty tangerine and lychee.
Dry young oak, pencil shavings and crusty white bread with honeyed white fruit, lemon curd, candied orange peel, rosemary, white and black pepper.
Peppery spice, dry oak tannins, vanilla and baked apple pie with pine, rosemary and peppery spice.
A tad overly woody so perhaps not as harmonious as the name promises. However, Hibiki Harmony is complex with generous fruity, spice and floral notes.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
