Hibiki Blender’s Choice Japanese Whisky

Jun 7, 2018

Category: Vices

Last year, the famous Japanese brewing and distilling company Suntory sadly announced that they’d be discontinuing their Hibiki 17-year-old Whisky due to stock shortages. Fortunately, they’ve lifted our spirits up with their recent announcement of a new whisky concoction called ‘Blender’s Choice.’

The award-winning Suntory company seems to be shooting for yet another ‘World’s Best Blended Whisky’ accolade, so everybody wins. Their new Japanese whisky is made with carefully selected vintages, including a few wine cask-aged whiskeys in the blend for a unique flavor with tremendous depth. In other words, you’ll know within the first sip that you’re drinking a beverage that was fused together by expert blenders at the top of their game. At 43% alcohol by volume, this whisky will get the job done and help you sink into a zone of tranquility. Suntory will be releasing the Hibiki Blender’s Choice on September 4th, so get your taste buds prepped if you’re planning to get your hands on one of the 700ml bottles.
