Suntory Hibiki 17 Year Japanese Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1180962 Wine & Spirits

 There is a perception that Japanese whisky is merely reengineered Scotch, but the truth is that Japanese whisky distillers are now forging their own path. Hibiki’s 17-Year is a terrific example: Blended from Suntory’s Yamazaki and Hakashu distilleries’ stocks, along with grain distillate from its Chita distillery, and aged in a combination of American and Japanese oak barrels as well as Sherry butts, it’s remarkably elegant. Don’t let the whisky’spale color trick you—it packs a ton of flavor, from pear and apple to mint and caramelized bananas, with an herbal pine-rosemary edge. (LB)  (11/2014)

K&L Notes

Suntory's Hibiki 17 received its 15 minutes of fame as the whisky Bill Murray promoted in "Lost in Translation," but that's hardly all that makes it special. This supple whisky from the Honshu region of Japan is immediately appealing. Awarded "Editor's Choice" from Whisky Magazine.
