Hibiki 12 year old -- limited

Back in stock!

Suntory Hibiki Whisky 12 year old....$73.99 / 750ml
Malt whiskies matured 12 years or longer are perfectly matched with mellow grain whiskies of the same age to create this HIBIKI offering. Also included is some whisky from casks formerly used in long-term aging of Japanese plum liqueur, which helps bring out the sweet floral notes on the nose and palate that Suntory whisky is known for. Adding venerable malt aged more than 30 years further brings out the bouquet and adds body to the palate. At a turning point marking the 20th anniversary of HIBIKI, this new offering brings together all of Suntory's whisky making expertise and blending craftsmanship for whisky enthusiasts around the world.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant amber in color. A fruity bouquet, followed by sweet honey and custard cream. On the palate, a soft and mellow sweetness makes this a whisky one can also enjoy straight. A long finish, with subtle tartness and a spicy bouquet.

Did they put an age statement back on it? I thought they changed it to Harmony. Just curious if it's new old stock or they brought it back. Either way both offerings are really good and that a good price.

Do be honest, I am not sure. The distributor released some more, but I am not sure if it is new or if they importer just had some stash left. We were just happy to get it.
