    1. Hibiki 35-year-old Whisky

    For your favourite collector, the ultimate coup will be to get hold of Suntory’s newly released Hibiki 35 Year Old - an extremely limited release with just 200 bottles available world-wide, in two designs. It’s the first time the 35-year-old is being released outside of Japan, and is a blend of malt and grain whiskies aged for three and a half decades. Described as having top notes of aloe wood, dried fruits, vanilla and honey, it has an alcohol content of 47 per cent and best drunk neat.

    The Hibiki 35 Year Old is housed in two different bottle designs made by artisans in Arita and Kutani. The Arita bottle follows a traditional blue and white design, while the Kutani bottle boasts bold brushstrokes and vibrant colours. The only problem is that the stockists haven’t been revealed yet, so stay tuned.
