Hibiki 21 Year Old Japanese Blended Whisky
Suntory’s outstanding Hibiki 21 Year Old was announced the World’s Best Blended Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards in 2016 and 2017, and the Best Japanese Blended Whisky in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. In fact, it has received an award at this prestigious competition almost every year since 2009, not to mention a score of 96 points from Jim Murray, and gold medals from the International Wine & Spirit Competition plus the International Spirits Challenge. And it will most likely continue this winning streak long into the future, providing the critics and judges can get their hands on a rare bottle.
In its 24 faceted decanter bottle, Hibiki – which means resonance – is the graceful epitome of Japanese artistry. And as one of the most awarded whiskies in history, demand for the 21 Year Old is always huge. However, this demand is likely to skyrocket further amidst news reports that Suntory’s aged whisky stocks have run dry, confirmed by the announcement that Hibiki 17 Year Old – famously featured in Lost in Translation – will be discontinued. Paraphrasing Bill Murray’s character in the aforementioned film, “for relaxing times, make it Suntory time” while you still can.
Pulling the stopper, you will discover a deeply complex whisky that’s as smooth as honey. Nosing it reveals walnut baklava, smoky coal scuttles, dhal spices, Cuban cigars, treacle tart, honeycomb, apple pie, apricots baked in Sauternes, dried fruit, citrus peel, fresh cream and finally incense from Mizunara casks.
