Hibiki 17 Discontinued
Given the aforementioned quality and popularity of the Hibiki 17, it came as something of a shock when, in 2018, Suntory announced that they would be discontinuing this delicious expression. The news, no doubt a result of the on-going Japanese whisky shortage, brought tears to the eyes of millions and prompted something of a rush to buy bottles before they were all gone.
Now, just over one year on from that sad day in 2018, supplies of the Hibiki 17 are running exceptionally low. Fortunately for fans of this brilliant creation, at dekanta we still have some stock remaining in our Tokyo warehouses, so it’s still possible to get your hands on what will surely become a piece of Japanese history.
