Hibiki 21 Year Old Blended Japanese Suntory Whisky 700mL
“…it’s hard to raise the bar much higher than this. Stunning.” – Jim Murray, Whisky Bible 2014
An incredibly rare whisky, Hibiki is the blended whisky brand produced by Suntory. Combining their two single malt whiskies, Hakushu and Yamazaki, with their corn-based grain whisky, Chita, they create something completely their own.
Utilizing a mix of American, European, and Japanese wood this aged a minimum of 21 years and bottled at 86 proof. This is being slowly released to a couple of US major markets at the end of 2014 and then further expanding to the rest of the country for 2015 along with their 17 year-old version.
