Suntory launching Hibiki 12 y/o in U.S.July 14th, 2009
This Japanese blended whisky was introduced to select European markets this past May. I was informed yesterday by their PR company that the whisky will be launched in the U.S. on October 1st.
I am very excited about this. Suntory has many great whiskies in addition to their Yamazaki single malts. Hibiki is one. Hakushu, their other single malt distillery, is another. Maybe this means we might see Hakushu coming to the US in the near future? Let’s hope so.
Here’s some details on Hibiki from Suntory’s website.
I’m getting a review sample shorty and will report back with my thoughts.
