Hibiki Blossom Harmony Japanese Whisky 700ml (Limited Release 2022)
Suntory Whisky was founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii. For over three generations, Suntory's master blenders have devoted themselves to pursuing the harmony of Japanese nature and craftsmanship. Shaped through masterful technique and served with a reverence for Japanese omotenashi, Suntory whiskies are among the most awarded and admired in the world.
Hibiki is the paragon of harmony - launched in 1989 to commemorate Suntory's philosophy on living in harmony with people and nature. The name Hibiki means "resonance" in Japanese. Suntory Whisky Hibiki resonates with the subtleties of nature infused by the twenty-four reasons of Japan's traditional calendar and reflected in the twenty-four facets of its bottle's designs.
Hibiki is a noble blend of innumerous malt and grain whiskies from Suntory's globally acclaimed Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita distilleries. These whiskies are meticulously blended to created a sense of "wa" - a oneness which unveils a full orchestra of flavours and aroma.
This whisky is an amber colour in the glass with floral aromas, sakura, and fragrant olive. A smooth mouthfeel across the palate with expanding fragrance, French pear, acacia honey, and a refined sweetness suggesting sakura mochi. A long-lasting rich finish and a brilliant aftertaste.
For this limited edition 2022, Suntory has taken the Hibiki liquid and used a Sakura cask for the finish. There is the creaminess and light fruits from Hibiki with the spices and floral tones from the Sakura cask.
