Gorgeous, soft flavours. A beautifully balanced harmony that is unique to Japanese whisky.

HIBIKI Blenders’ Choice

HIBIKI 17 years (on hiatus)

Due to the increasing demand for domestic whisky and the long time it takes to secure enough undiluted whisky, Hibiki 17 Year is no longer available since September 2018.

HIBIKI 21 years

The malt is a carefully selected blend of very long matured malts, over 21 years old. The grain is also carefully selected and blended with mature grain that is over 21 years old. The result is a sumptuous harmony of different types of raw materials that only Suntory can produce.

HIBIKI 30 years

It is a rare and precious limited edition, with only a few thousand bottles produced annually. The malt must be at least 30 years old and carefully selected from Suntory’s secret collection of ultra-long maturation barrels. The malt is carefully selected from Suntory’s own ultra-long maturation barrels and blended with mature grain barrels that are at least 30 years old. The result is a jewel of luxury.
