Hibiki 12

An exquisite 12 year old blended Japanese whisky. Hibiki includes malt whisky from Yamazaki and Hakushu, as well as grain whisky from Chita. The whisky is partly matured in plum liqueur barrels. Sadly, following the massive surge in popularity of Japanese whisky in the 2010s, this expression was discontinued by Suntory in 2015. Bottles have now become rare and collectible.

This bottle was part of a private collection - if you'd like more detailed photos just get in touch!

Please also note it comes without a box.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Juicy marmalade with real chunks of orange, cooked apples dusted with cinnamon, thick honey and plum wine.

Palate Crushed almonds, stewed fruits, clove-studded oranges. Sherried malt and a subtle core of oak.

Finish Bright and flavoursome with crisp apple and citrus.

World Best 12 Year Blended Whisky
Absolutely ultimate blended Whisky, nothing can beat it. But I'm very disappointed caused it's no longer available on the Market, that's why the Price now $$$$$ No one can afford it. Well done Suntory

Exceptional, yes! Value, no!
Just finished my first 700ml bottle that's been at the back of my shelf for years. Still exceptional but not AU$600 so! I'd gladly trade my remaining four bottles for a similar value of Talisker 10 or 57' North. I doubt I'll be opening another bottle until my 20th wedding anniversary in nine years time if I'm even still around then!

Hibiki delight
Love me whisky - got one of these when it won awards - wondered what all the fuss was about - not disappointed one of my favs. lovely plummy woody sweet nose and a nice orangey / marmalade with a nice tingle at the end - beautiful. Great present for a whisky lover or a whisky party.

This is a pretty nice expression from Hibiki. I prefer this to the 17 yo. I have now collected 6 bottles. Yummy
