The Hibiki 21 year old is pretty 'Hard To Find' these days due to the multitude of awards it has won.
Hibiki is the blended whisky brand produced by Suntory. Combining their two single malt whiskies, Hakushu and Yamazaki, with their corn-based grain whisky, Chita, they create something completely their own.
Utilizing a mix of American, European, and Japanese wood this aged a minimum of 21 years and bottled at 86 proof. This is being slowly released to a couple of US major markets at the end of 2014 and then further expanding to the rest of the country for 2015 along with their 17 year-old version.
