Hibiki 17 Years

Hibiki 17 years is an interesting whisky because it doesn’t really drink like a blend. It’s the kind of whisky that you could be forgiven for confusing it with a single malt. It came in a 24 sided glass decanter like the Hibiki 12 and outside of the numerical difference and a different color of text, it looked very similar in both presentation and whisky color.

Even when it did make an appearance in America it was rare and almost always hidden behind glass doors and cases. The ones you have to push a button or flag someone down to open so you can purchase the whiskey and take it home with you. These days the Hibiki 17 would cost you 3-4x+ times that in specialty shops, secondary markets and online auctions. Oh the whisky world we live in.

Hibiki 12 Years (No Box)

Hibiki 12 is a blended whisky from the Japanese company Suntory and is a blend of Suntory’s Yamazaki and Hakushu single malts. Being a blend it also contains a grain whisky from their Chita distillery. The whiskies start aging in ex-bourbon barrels, but at some point the liquid spends time maturing in plum liqueur barrels. I can’t say I get any plummy notes from it, but I will say it has a unique character and that could definitely be playing a part in that.

Now for the sad part… Hibiki 12 is no longer being made and has been replaced with a NAS version called Harmony (which I’ll be reviewing soon), but it can still be found fairly easily. I picked this one up at a smaller liquor store here in Los Angeles recently and I also know that an LA Costco got in a huge shipment of them a month or two back and put them out at a reduced price to close it out. Right now is an interesting time for Hibiki 12, some stores (usually chains) are closing the bottles out and reducing the price while other stores (usually specialty shops) are jacking up the price. Regardless if you want to try it now is the time because it won’t be too much longer before it’s all gone and the only price in town is the secondary market price, and that’s never pleasant.

Regrann from @japanesewhiskyshop - Hibiki Japanese Harmony Master Select Limited Edtion

Hibiki Japanese Harmony encapsulates the harmony that exists between Japanese nature and people.
Inspired by the riches and subtleties of Japan’s 24 seasons and mastered by Suntory’s Art of Blending, Hibiki Japanese Harmony is a meticulous blend of the finest select whiskies from the House of Suntory Whisky.
It is a symphony of at least 10 malt and grain whiskies, aged in five different types of casks, from Suntory’s Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita distilleries.
This delicate blend creates a oneness unfolding a full orchestra of flavours and aromas.
The Suntory Whisky blending team is led by third-generation Master Blender and great-grandson of the founder, Shingo Torii, and fourth Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo.
Hibiki Japanese Harmony is heralded as the foundation of the Hibiki range, leveraging the same key malt and grain whiskies from the original Hibiki blend, Hibiki 17 Years and Hibiki 21 Years.
American White Oak malt whiskies create a solid base.
The rare Mizunara (Japanese oak) and sherry cask malt whiskies are the dressing.
The smoky malt whiskies enact as subtle accents to create depth and further complexity.
Grain whiskies from Suntory’s Chita distillery act as the "dashi," or broth, to complete the personality of the malt whiskies and enhance their overall harmony.
Hibiki Japanese Harmony is extremely versatile.
Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, blended with water or mixed as a cocktail, the harmony of this blend remains complete.
It is a delicately balanced, smooth and subtly sweet blended whisky that enhances any dining experience.
We recommend it be enjoyed with a hand-carved iceball for the ultimate Japanese whisky experience.
Hibiki is embraced as the paragon of the Art of Japanese Whisky.

Suntory ‘Wa-Kyo’ Blended Whisky for Shinanoya

Towards the end of last year, we unveiled that the good folk at Shinanoya were about to release an extraordinary blended whisky crafted by Suntory chief blender Shinji Fukuyo. It’s been 6 years since Shinanoya last released a Suntory exclusive bottling, so it’s a bit of an understatement to say that this is an eagerly anticipated release. The blend is composed around malt matured in mizunara casks and it’s called “Wa-Kyo” (which roughly translates as ‘Japanese harmony/resonance’). “Wa-Kyo” will officially go on sale this weekend, and is expected to sell out instantly. This partly has to do with a fact that a large part of the outturn (which is 530 bottles, bottled at 43%abv) has been reserved by pre-orders. (People attending the Chichibu Whisky Matsuri last weekend had the chance to sign up in advance for a bottle… and since 1,400 people flocked to the festival, it’s easy to understand why there would be very few bottles left.).The competition of fellow Japanese-whisky aficionados will be!

Nikka Taketsuru 35 Yo
The Taketsuru range acknowledges the efforts of the company founder, and suitably, only the very best whiskies make the cut for the "Blended Malts" bearing his name. With Nikka's 12, 17 and 21 year old whiskies now almost impossible to procure, it's ironic that we've just secured a bottle of what's generally considered the jewel in the crown: Nikka's 35 Year Old has always been super limited and a release exclusively reserved for the Japanese market. A remarkable opportunity.43% Alc./Vol.

The tale of Masataka Taketsuru's life is of the same fabric legends are made of. Sent in 1918 as young apprentice to Scotland by his Japanese employers to crack the secrets of whisky, he not only came back with that knowledge but also with Rita Taketsuru (nee Cowan), who went on playing a decisive role in the development of the Japanese Whisky industry. Thanks to her connection to Japanese high society, Masataka was able to finance the company that is now known as Nikka Whisky.This blend of malts is reputedly from the two Nikka distilleries, Yoichi and Miyagikyo.
