About this deal

Hibiki as a Suntory brand was launched in 1989 to celebrate the art of Japanese whisky-making…as I said in my Hibiki Harmony review, I consider this a perfect expression of that, with delicacy, intention, complexity, and clarity all falling into place. I left the bottle alone for 15 minutes before pouring a dram for nosing and tasting and followed up the tasting the next day, these are combined notes with my final score. 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). You will defend (at our option), indemnify and hold harmless us and our parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, (sub)licensees, assignees, successors, authorized third party contractors from any and all loss, damage, claim, liability or expense (including reasonable outside legal fees and costs) actually incurred as a result of a third party claim arising out of a breach or alleged breach of your obligations, representations and warranties made herein. By using the Service, and by creating an account you represent, warrant and confirm that you are of legal age.

Seventeen years seems a bit too long for this dram and I would like to try one of the younger Hibikis (the 12 yo or their new NAS expression). Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki Whisky celebrates an unrivalled art of blending, fine craftsmanship and a sense of luxury from the House of Suntory. This limited edition bottling takes its name, Kacho Fugetsu, from the rough translation for flower, birds, breeze and lunar and celebrates the beauty of Japan's nature. Fans were were shocked this year when Suntory announced that they would be discontinuing the highly acclaimed bottle. Without prejudice to the section Liability below, the Service may be temporarily unavailable during maintenance, updates, etc.g."soapy" is most definitely not the product of oxidation, but a defect in production and quality control. If we decide not to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms, such decision shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Never before have I had such an intense floral scent in my glass, my nose is the absolute top hammer!

Nothing in the Terms shall exclude or limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or for death or personal injury resulting from gross negligence or willful misconduct by us.

The Hibiki brand was created in 1989 to celebrate Suntory’s 90th anniversary, making it a significant release in the company’s history.stunning aftertaste that lingers and warms the mouth with a long spicy-sweet tingling finish of ginger and cinnamon.
