Suntory Distillery Hibiki Blender's Choice Whisky 700ml

Fine Blend from Japan's Leading Distillery

Sun­to­ry Dis­tillery Hibi­ki Blender’s Choice Whisky is a pre­mi­um grade NAS (no age state­ment) blend of the finest whiskies. 

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Upon tast­ing the Sun­to­ry Dis­tillery Hibi­ki Blender’s Choice Whisky, you can detect fresh acidic fruits lay­er­ing the nose of this whisky. The tart is quite dis­tin­guish­able and brings to mind apples and rich dark berries. But there’s also some spice and hints of caramel and vanil­la, which does a tremen­dous amount to soft­en and round this whisky. A lit­tle breath­ing time and the whiskey begins to reveal its sub­tle dimensions. 

The palate is actu­al­ly quite sur­pris­ing as it man­ages to con­vey the fla­vor of woody oak which then light­ens as the vanil­la and caramel come through. The com­bi­na­tion of the light fresh fruits of the nose and the deep­er, sweet­er fla­vor from the palate is a con­trast that both sur­pris­es and delights. 

The fin­ish sees the return of the wood­en tones but with a much more smoked and gen­tle set­tle. It’s quite a dry whisky, and you’ll enjoy extend­ing the fin­ish and devel­op­ing the sub­tle nuances of fla­vor with a water chaser.

Pair­ings

This fine whisky is best enjoyed as is or over ice. 

A Wor­thy Successor

Sun­to­ry Dis­tillery Hibi­ki Blender’s Choice is a whisky from one of Japans biggest dis­til­leries who has a his­to­ry of mak­ing fine malt and blend­ed whisky. Seen by some as the suc­ces­sor to the famous, but sad­ly no longer avail­able Hibi­ki 17 Year Old, the Sun­to­ry Dis­tillery Hibi­ki Blender’s Choice is very much its own whisky. It has its own char­ac­ter and takes you on a dif­fer­ent whisky experience. 

Although no age state­ment for the whiskey is released, the whiskey is claimed to have blends which vary from 12 to 30 years old. At 43% ABV (Alco­hol by vol­ume), Sun­to­ry Dis­tillery Hibi­ki Blender’s Choice Whisky comes in at the lighter end of the whisky strengths and is quite sim­i­lar to a Scotch.

Storage Instructions

Store your bot­tle upright in a cool, dark place, ide­al­ly between 15 and 20°C. Do not refrig­er­ate, as this liquor los­es its aro­ma and fla­vor with cold. To main­tain the moist­ness of the cork and pre­vent it from chip­ping, occa­sion­al­ly tilt your bot­tle hor­i­zon­tal­ly two to three times, then restore it to the upright posi­tion. Unopened bot­tles can last for an indef­i­nite amount of time, but the clos­er you get to the bot­tom third of the bot­tle, please con­sume quick­ly to pre­vent oxi­da­tion and taste alteration.
