The newest version of the legendary Hibiki 21 Year Old that houses the same outstanding flavours inside a newly designed bottle and box. The subtle refinements made to the 2019 Edition help to bring added flair and elegance to the world-beating expression. The box has been revamped with a more upscale appearance and while the previous version was undoubtedly stunning, this new one feels even more deserving of housing a multi-award winning bottle inside. The label has also been updated with a new tagline. Where it used to say “A harmonious blend of handcrafted select specially aged whiskies”, it now states “A harmonious blend of the finest selection of specially aged whiskies.”
One thing that hasn’t changed is the composition of the liquid. It retains the original formula that has earned dozens of prestigious awards from leading competitions and houses the same outstanding tasting notes inside. After all, when a whisky is this good, there’s simply no sense in making a change.
That means you’ll experience a sweet and complex expression that exhibits outstanding balance through a range of harmonious aromas and flavours.
Strawberry jam, orange peels, apple crumble, sweet caramel, cherries, a whiff of smoke and a range of dried fruits all work in tandem to tantalise the nose and palate and leave you longing for another dram time and time again.
