An exciting new whisky from Hombo Mars that was blended at their famous Shinshu distillery, in Japan’s Central Alps, before being matured in a Sakura cask, otherwise known as cherry blossom. Only a few whiskies have been matured in such a cask previously, however the results are such that we’re likely to see more in the near future. Sweet citrus, ripe banana, candied peels and hints of cinnamon are apparent on the nose before sweet cherries, subtle incense and light black pepper spice appear on the palate. The finish is long, with floral notes of hibiscus and Turkish delight lasting for some time.

Hibiki 21 Year Old was, yet again, selected as the best blended whisky in the world at the World Whisky Awards 2017. This comes as no surprise to us at dekantā, as the Hibiki has been awarded every year at the WWA since 2009, and is, in our view, a work of pure genius. The judges described it as being “Elegant, sweet and complex. This whisky is full of dried fruit, orange peel, strawberry jam, and baked apple from start to finish. Smooth, subtle and fairly short.” We agree and we are sure you will, too!
