"Kanzen" or complete, Hibiki Whisky is a harmonious blend of innumerous malt and grain whiskies from the Yamazaki, Hakushu, and Chita distilleries which are meticulously blended to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas.
Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki Whisky celebrates an unrivaled art of blending, fine craftsmanship and a sense of luxury from the House of Suntory. From its launch, Hibiki Whisky has been embraced as the paragon of The Art of Japanese Whisky, the very product of Japanese nature and her people. Hibiki Whisky is not only Japans most highly awarded blended whisky, but among the most prestigious and honored whiskies in the world.
Hibiki 17 year is an elegant and poised whisky with an amber color that slowly reveals a clear yet complex equilibrium. Its nose has peach, apricot, melon, rose, lily and lemon leaf aromas. On the palate, toffee, black cherry, vanilla, and Mizunara (Japanese oak) flavors lead into a sweet, fruity finish with lychee aftertaste. (from Suntory)
