Last Call for the Suntory Hibiki 12 Year From K&L – Japanese Whisky News


Since its original debut in the U.S., the Hibiki 12 has symbolized excellence in not just Japanese whisky, but whisky as a whole. Blended to a seamless perfection, the flavors of vanilla, sweet malt, and butterscotch have enticed drinkers around the world like a siren, hypnotizing whisky fans with its haunting beauty. A perfectly assembled blend of malt whiskeys matured 12 years or longer and mellow grain whiskies of the same age; it also includes some whisky from casks formerly used in long-term aging of Japanese plum liqueur – this helps bring out the sweet floral notes on the nose and palate for which Suntory whisky is known. Adding venerable malt aged more than 30 years further brings out the bouquet and adds body to the palate. Unfortunately for those of us who value its quality, the demand for the 12 year has become unsustainable and in 2015 Suntory announced it would be discontinuing the expression, replacing it with a younger blend called the “Harmony,” (which are also excited to present in today’s offer). We were lucky enough to grab one last curtain call before they pulled the plug on the 12 and we don’t expect it to last long. If you like the Hibiki 12 year as much as we do, it’s time to load up your reinforcements.
