Hibiki 17 Years Old Mount Fuji Limited Edition
Suntory is the oldest whisky making company in Japan. Its origins stretch back to a small shop, started in 1899 by Torii Shinjiro, which specialized in selling imported wines. Today, it is the country’s largest and most recognizable producer of quality whisky. Of all its products, the Hibiki remains the most popular, having been chosen as the best whisky in the world on several occasions. For anyone who has tried this flagship product from Suntory, this should come as no surprise. Here, we present the Hibiki 17 years old Musashino Fuji, 2013 edition. Only 2000 hand painted bottles were made. To Commemorate Mount Fuji the highest peak in Japan getting added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List in 2013, Suntory released this special edition. The Hibiki whose bottle always has 24 facets representing the 24 seasons of the Japanese lunar calendar has been redecorated with a painting of a scenic view of Mount Fuji.
Suntory is a giant in the whisky producing field. It has produced innumerable award winning whiskies for both the domestic and export markets. Of these, both the single malts of Yamazaki and Hakushu often make the headlines but the distillery group also produces the sensational (and multiple award winning) Hibiki blended whisky, (aged at 12yo, 17yo, 21 yo and 30 yo) using spirit from the aforementioned distilleries as well as grain whisky from their Chita production plant. The 12yo Hibiki is noted for its fragrant, fruity aroma, which it partly obtains from additional maturation using Ume Plum Wine casks.
