Hibiki Blossom Harmony Edition 2022 70cl 43°
The name "Hibiki" is derived from the Japanese word meaning "resonance". Since its launch in 1989, in honour of Suntory's 60th anniversary, the Hibiki brand has embodied the company's philosophy of living in harmony with nature and people. As a pioneer of Japanese whisky and a house of master blenders, Suntory sought to explore the different dimensions of harmony in a blend. Each Hibiki expression is considered one of the most coveted blends in the world because it offers a unique and precise experience of harmony.
Achieving the right balance in the blend was a real challenge, due to the strong personality of the Sakura cask which can easily overpower other aromas. After many attempts, the master blenders discovered that grain whiskeys from Sakura casks were best suited to balance the whole.
The result of this Hibiki Blossom Harmony Edition 2022 is a unique and bewitching expression, with an alluring floral bouquet followed by a complex depth, typical of Hibiki. There are notes of honey, candied orange peel, jasmine and chocolate, all ending with a surprising finish of spicy, sweet and bitter notes.
