Of all the Suntory’s assets, the Yamazaki distillery is something of a legend in the Japanese whisky world. It’s behind these distillery walls that Suntory carefully ages its Japanese Umeshu (plum liqueur) in toasted Yamazaki casks. An exotic Japanese liquor, this release is sweet and decadent, bursting with notes of roasted oak. Perfect for fans of the Hibiki 12, as some of the whisky blended into it was aged in these umeshu casks.

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!
