Hibiki Whisky 12 Year 750ML

Founded in 1899, the Suntory brand started as a small wine store in Osaka, but grew rapidly over the years, encompassing a wide range of products. Their construction of the Yamazaki Distillery in 1923 and the release of Suntory Shirofuda Whisky in 1929 brought Japanese Whisky into the public eye. Suntory's outstanding craftsmanship and expertise is apparent in every bottle, and their Hibiki 12 Year Whisky is no different.

This impressive blend of malt and grain whiskies displays pronounced notes of honeysuckle, vanilla, plum, and citrus fruit on the both the nose and palate. Soft and mellow, this is a complex, yet easy drinking whisky with a long, gentle finish. The eye-catching bottle has 24 facets, representing both the hours in a day and the seasons of the lunar calendar.

Light amber/yellow color. Flowers and spice greet the olfactory sense in waves. On palate, there’s a keen nuttiness (walnut) and a bitterness that work well in tandem at entry, then the midpalate turns caramel-like and mildly sweet.

Country: Japan
Type: Japanese Whisky
