“Our team took on the challenge of crafting a new blend for the limited-edition Hibiki 21-Year-Old to celebrate our holiday,” says Suntory Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo. The distinctive flavor profile of our Hibiki rye is enhanced by the difficult yet rewarding qualities of Japanese Mizunara oak, which we were able to precisely and methodically utilize. This unique whisky is a testament to the House of Suntory’s ongoing commitment to quality workmanship.”

The palate combines delicately flowery and sweet notes with agarwood and spicy sandalwood. The outcome is a rich, lengthy finish with hints of spicy Mizunara oak. The ABV of Hibiki 21-Year-Old is 43% in bottles.
The holiday Hibiki Japanese Harmony bottle design by the House of Suntory embodies the art of “Monozukuri” workmanship; the design of each of the house’s centennial limited editions has been motivated by the same unwavering quest for quality, inventiveness, and expressiveness. The snow, moon, and flower designs on the Hibiki Japanese Harmony centenary edition packaging symbolize the changing seasons in Japan.

The ‘Kakehashi’ represents the Japanese people’s sentimental attachment to the distinctive seasonality of their nation and its importance in daily life. Which encourages a respect for time that greatly speaks to and motivates Hibiki.
