Description

First introduced in 1989, this blend undergoes maturation in Japanese mizunara oak casks at Yamazaki. Our eco-friendly approach doesn't compromise on protection, ensuring your items are safe during transit. My wife Dramlette thinks that distilleries de-emphasize the quality standards of the minis and are more inclined to put their lesser batches of products there. Hibiki whisky is known for both its quality and its distinctive fluted bottle; the 24 facets represent the 24 seasons in a Japanese year. It was an expensive whisky, and a bit out of my league as a beginner,but the nearest I could get was Hibiki 17 years, which I first drunk in the Park Hyatt New York Bar, Tokyo… and it was just as good.

Chita, on the other hand, is traditionally used as the “dashi” or broth that enhances Suntory blends. The name "Hibiki" signifies harmony, a quality undoubtedly accomplished in this exceptional and iconic blend.Finish is reasonably long, more fruit, some bolied sweets and bonfire toffee and has the barest, barest whispering of smoke.

Sophisticated, yet laid back with a stone fruit and floral aroma, an oaked black cherry and vanilla flavour, and a long-lasting lychee aftertaste.

V. (“Whiskybase”, “we” or “us”, company details below) offers a whisky enthusiasts online platform that provides its members access to the most comprehensive, transparent and trusted resource of whisky bottles and allows and stimulates its members to contribute information about whisky bottles to the platform (“Service”).mine was bottled before 2006, probably 2005 (and going by reviews I've looked up recently, I have seen the average scores getting better over the last several years).

Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki Whisky celebrates an unrivalled art of blending, fine craftsmanship and a sense of luxury from the House of Suntory. The Hibiki 17 Year Old Blended Whisky is made from a combination of malt whiskies from the Yamazaki and Hakushu distilleries, as well as grain whisky from the Chita distillery. A warm, pleasant taste of fruity toffee, barley sugar sticks dipped in chocolate and marron glacés, with an attractive heat playing around the mouth. Bitterness, whilst tolerable, is not beneficial and tends to be overly prominent during tasting and finishing.We have the right to transfer, assign the license granted by you to us, or grant licenses and sublicenses to our licensees, or have and allow them granting sublicenses to licensees to any other parties.

After a long period of experimentation, Chita has achieved a level of complexity and sophistication to allow the grain to take centre stage. When aerated, opens up on citrussy notes and barley sugar before a wave of vanilla brings in a sweet brine. Balance: Not as "harmonious" (as the translation of Hibiki implies), I find that although certain elements in this whisky work well, they do not combine in such a way as to elevate the overall experience, such as a very good whisky can do.
