Hibiki 17 Years Old is a classic Japanese blended whisky produced by Suntory. The blend consists of malt whiskies from Yamazaki and Hakushu, as well as grain whisky from Chita. The whisky has been aged in rare Mizunara oak barrels. Suntory launched Hibiki in 1989. The brand is named after the Japanese word for resonance. Hibiki resonates with the subtleties of nature infused by the twenty-four seasons of Japan’s traditional calendar and reflected in the twenty-four facets of its bottle design. This is the newer release with black stripes on the box.
