Another experiment. I suppose the idea has it's heart in a Rusty Nail, but evolved. Sort of. But also something else entirely.
Hibiki Harmony from @Suntorywhisky
Wild Moon Rose from @hartfordflavor
Arum golden orange liqueur, a gift from @palcool
from his grandmother's stash. A 70's standard, and it works really well today
Juice from half of a tangelo (in season they are way better than oranges!)
For the record, I blind tested Hibiki 12 year vs. Japanese Harmony, and everyone, even those with no whiskey experience at all, could easily tell the difference. Harmony tastes young. It lacks complexity. It's great for mixing and not good for sipping. What I said here still applies: http://tiny.cc/naswhiskey
