The Epitome of Japanese Whisky Elegance 

A highly acclaimed and rare whisky, this is a blend of single malts and grain whisky from the Yamazaki (Japan’s oldest founded in 1923), Hakushu and Chita distilleries.

Hibiki 17 Year Old is one of our all-time great Japanese drams here at DC and unfortunately has become as rare as hens teeth. It gets some of its unique qualities from being filtered through bamboo charcoal, this process creates a softer spirit with sweeter tones and more mineral expression.

Nose: A whole shop full of candy! There are notes of honey, brown sugar, juicy pear and caramel. Also a hint of gentle smoke and cacao with a nutty undertone. 

Palate: Sweet and rich. There are crisp notes of mixed peels, raisin and custard with a little zest and plenty of oak. Toffee, black cherry, vanilla

Finish: Long and smooth with notes of oak, cocoa and sherried peels.
