Whisky Hibiki Harmony Suntory
Availability: In stock
The legendary Suntory distillery, a household name in the world of Japanese whisky, is the producer of Hibiki Harmony Suntory, which showcases the unique character of the whiskies coming from the land of the rising sun.
The word Hibiki – meaning “resonance” or “echo” in Japanese – describes a type of whisky produced by blending several malt and grain whiskies, wisely selected from hundreds of samples by the master blender in order to produce a complex, nuanced and, above all, harmonius Suntory whisky. This type of blended whisky, incidentally, was made famous in the West by Sofia Coppola's 2003 cult movie ‘Lost in Translation.’
Produced from about 15 different whiskies around 20 years of age, this Hibiki whisky is pale gold with some orange-ish reflections. The nose is really sophisticated, with aromas of ripe cherries, Japanese oak, elderberry, cardamom and coco. On the palate, the whisky Hibiki Harmony Suntory is wonderfully balanced and expressive, with a smooth, silky body and a very long finish with remembrances of ripe peaches and apricots, ending with a note of spices, cocoa and cinnamon.
