About this deal

My bottle of the Hibiki 17 has certainly gone over well with newcomers and experienced scotch drinkers alike in my tastings. Fuji bottlings and the 30th Anniversary - are decorated directly onto the glass, somehow adding to the beauty and making the whiskey within part of the artwork. The Hibiki Harmony was never in danger of disappearing because there was no age statement, but the same can’t be said for the 17. Any investment and purchase made, or action(s) taken based upon (information in) the Service may and will involve significant risk (such as, but not limited to loss, total loss). 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 17 year old is one of the most recognizable bottles in Suntorys world renowned product line, It has been a staple among whisky enthusiasts for years.The distillery's use of a variety of cask types, including American, Spanish, and Japanese oak, adds depth and complexity to its whiskies, reflecting the diversity of its approach. A fantastic Japanese blend, made with aged malt and grain whiskies from Suntory's three distilleries.

Made from water with a rare softness and maturing in a lush, forested microclimate, the Hakushu Distillery is blessed by the region’s ever-changing seasons.

As the first age-stated Hibiki product, it’s pretty impressive that 17 is the base age (important side note: Japanese whisky laws are notoriously lax around importing and relabeling, but by-and-large the companies otherwise abide in spirit by Scottish laws, meaning a 17-year age statement = the youngest whisky in the blend is at least 17 years old).

After a long period of experimentation, Chita has achieved a level of complexity and sophistication to allow the grain to take centre stage. Kanzen" or complete, Hibiki Whisky is a harmonious blend of innumerous malt and grain whiskies which are meticulously blended to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas. g."soapy" is most definitely not the product of oxidation, but a defect in production and quality control.
