Only 1 left in stock
Suntory is the largest and most popular Japanese whisky company, and its flagship product, the Hibiki, continues to be in great demand. Bill Murray drank the Hibiki in the movie, Lost in Translation. Named the best whisky in the world more than once, this whisky has won international awards again and again, including at the World Whisky Awards every year since 2009. If you want to try the best, you must try the Hibiki. The 21 Years Old was specially released for Shinjiro Torii Saji – Keizo Saji 100th’s Inauguration anniversary. A very special and unique bottle.
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.
Nose: Sweet, caramelized nuts, some lemon acidity, blackcurrants and pears with vanilla, dark toffee and rich sherry spice. Palate: Oak, dark cherry, and sweet caramel notes. Buttery, with a wisp of smoke and some wood spice. Finish: Long, with a hint of smoke.
There are no other notes at present.
