Hibiki Whisky 12 Year 750ml

Hibiki Whisky 12 Year

Hibiki, meaning resonance in Japanese, speaks to the soul and emotions of the most discerning whisky lover. Hibiki resonates from nature, and all the subtleties found from the twenty four seasons of the old Japanese lunar calendar. Numerous types of pure single malt whiskies ageing in various types of casks, including Mizunara, a very rare Japanese oak, all combine to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas. Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki celebrates the unrivaled art of blending, fine craftsmanship, and sense of luxury of the House. Bearing the seal of the House of Suntory, this majestic blend is its rightful paragon.

In 1899, at the age of 20, Shinjiro set up his own shop called Torii Shoten. His keen interest in wine grew into an obsession with blending, as he bought in sweeteners and spices and immersed himself in a quest to satisfy the popular palate. Eight years later, in 1907, he launched his very first Western liquor product; not whisky, but a sweetened wine called Akadama Port Wine. This product boosted his business enormously.

Probably my favorite whisky. Period. It is obvious that this blend is prepared with care and an eye for detail. Whiskies like the Hibiki will lead the Vangaurd as Japanese Whiskies become more popular in the United States.

My friend is a whisky connoiseur and was absolutely thrilled with this as a gift. I picked the Suntory 12-year because it's very close to what Bill Murray was advertising in "Lost In Translation." (I figured even if the whisky was mediocre, it had pop culture value. Luckily, the whisky is fantastic.) My friend got it just a few days after I ordered it. I'm really impressed and will definitely shop at Wine Chateau again.
