The Hibiki multi year old lies along the Suntory’s Hibiki line, between the Hibiki 17 Year Old and Hibiki 30 Year Old discharges. When mixing the whisky the goal is to discover harmony, or a fragile equalization. This interest drives the head blender to pick the best mix of whiskies from over Suntory’s outstanding refineries. This has taken years to consummate, yet the outcome is a real world-class bottle.
