FEATURED EXPRESSIONS: THE HIBIKI 12, 17, AND 21 YEAR OLD BLENDED WHISKIES
The marquee bottles will be be three age statements from the legendary Hibiki range. Hibiki means "harmony," and this highly-awarded range of Japanese blends is a harmonious marriage of ten Suntory malts, two grain spirits, and five kinds of barrels, meticulously blended to achieve subtle flavors and aromas. These expressions have not been released by the distillery for several years.

TAKETSURU 21 YEAR OLD PURE MALT
Named after Nikka Founder Masataka Taketsuru who, along with Shinjiro Torii of Suntory, pioneered the Japanese Whisky industry. This Pure Malt features a blending of single malts from Nikka's two famous distilleries, Yoichi and Miyagikyo, with no grain whiskies involved. This was named the World's Best Blended Malt Whisky three times by Whisky Magazine, and has not been released since 2020.

YAMAZAKI 12 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT
Now that this iconic Japanese whisky has been embraced by the rest of the world, Suntory has had a difficult time keeping up with the intense demand. The water used is sourced from the foothills of Mount Tenno, and is said to be the water preferred by Sen Yo Rikyu, Japan's legendary Tea Master. This has become an allocated bottle by Suntory, and hard to find.

HAKUSHU 12 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT
Distribution of this well-regarded whisky was paused in 2018 for several years until the maturing barrels caught up with demand. It's crafted with water of exceptional purity and softness, having been filtered through granite rocks, and the fermentation utilizes a unique strain of Hakushu's many yeasts. This expression has become challenging to find — and increasingly more expensive when you do.
