Suntory Hibiki 21 Years Kacho Fugetsu Limited Edition Whisky – Multi-award-winning Japanese Premium Blended Whisky by Suntory – One of 2000 Bottles. Hibiki, which means that Japanese harmony, is a master blend of rare and carefully selected malt whiskies that are a minimum of 21 years old, part of the blend matured in barrels from the very rare Japanese mizunara oak. The key malt comes from the famous Yamazaki sherry barrels, mixed with mellow grain malts. The result is breathtaking, with a sweet scent of dried fruit, a spicy aroma and taste, soft and creamy on the palate, with a wealthy, refined bouquet and a long finish with deep flavours. Jim Murray said: This can be a classic whisky in any language or culture. It is harking back to an autumn forest. The Suntory Hibiki 21 years has been awarded several times, won the World Whisky Award in 2010, 2011, 2013 and has been awarded several times by the International Wine and Spirits Competition. The 24 facets of the bottle symbolise the 24 seasons that you realize from the ancient tradition of Sekki – the ancient Japanese calendar.
