This extremely rare limited edition version of the Hibiki 21-year-old Mount Fuji ‘Kacho Fugetsu’ whisky (translating to “Beauty of Japanese Nature”) is available only at selected airports around the world, making it one of the rarest whiskies available.
Hibiki Bottles have 24 facets, representing 24 seasons of the Japanese lunar calendar. The Kacho Fugetsu limited edition also showcases a beautiful gold scenic print of Mount Fuji and the surrounding nature.
Hibiki, meaning ‘harmony’, is blended from Suntory’s Japanese distilleries, however, the exact makeup of the whisky is a distillery secret. The end result is a magnificently balanced sipping whisky; rich, creamy, dark cherry and caramel on the palate, soft and sweet on the finish with a touch of smoke.
The Hibiki 21 year old contains a high proportion of single malt in the blend (over 50%) with most of the aged material well above the declared 21 years.
Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible describes it as “…hard to raise the bar much higher than this. Stunning.” “Unbelievably balanced, and dangerously drinkable” 96 points.
