Hibiki 21 Year Old was, yet again, selected as the best blended whisky in the world at the World Whisky Awards 2017. This comes as no surprise to us at Uisuki.com.au as the Hibiki has been awarded every year at the WWA since 2009, and is, in our view, a work of pure genius. The judges described it as being “Elegant, sweet and complex. This whisky is full of dried fruit, orange peel, strawberry jam, and baked apple from start to finish.”
Review from Distiller.com:
"Tasting this whisky was one of those moments where your surroundings come to a halt and all of your senses are heightened. There is a beautiful marriage of grain and fruit expressed in this whisky. The sherry casks are quite evident with stone fruit and cherry mixed with warm baking spices and a light floral incense. The malt, however, is standing firm and not being over-powered by the fruit. There is a gentle wisp of smoke with the finish and it acts much like adding salt and pepper to your dish. Kudos to their master blender for a harmonious and elegant whisky."
