Hibiki Harmony Blossom Whisky // 700 ml
The Sakura Blossom season in early spring has always been an occasion for celebration in Japan, with many gathering around the beautiful flowering Sakura trees that inspire the Japanese to appreciate life as it blooms. Hibiki Harmony Blossom Whisky captures this joyful spirit by blending a rare selection of whiskies finished in Sakura wood casks.
Hibiki is a harmonious blend of various malt and grain whiskies from the House of Suntory—the founding House of Japanese Whisky. Launched in 1989 to commemorate Suntory’s 90th anniversary, Hibiki Whisky celebrates an unrivaled art of blending, fine craftsmanship, and luxury. It is not only Japan’s most highly awarded blended whisky, but among the most prestigious and honored whiskies in the world.
Constantly pushing the boundaries of what Japanese Whisky can be, the House of Suntory continues to explore and experiment with various wood types. The Sakura cask was one that intrigued Fifth Generation Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo: “I have been mesmerized by the Sakura cask for the last five years now due to its symbolism, but also because of its distinctive, subtly floral and spicy aroma and flavor notes. There have been many experiments with malt and grain whisky components, and we found that there was a special alchemy between the grain whiskies and the Sakura cask. It is this special relationship – harmony – that inspired me to create this blend.”
Achieving the right balance and orchestration proved to be a great challenge from the start since the Sakura cask is one with strong character that can easily become overbearing. After a period of trial and error, Fukuyo found that the grain whiskies finished in the Sakura cask best elevated the overall balance, and the end result is a particularly distinctive expression of Hibiki. It begins with an enticing floral bouquet, followed by the signature Hibiki depth and complexity of honey, candied orange peel, jasmine, and chocolatey decadence. The finish features surprising bittersweet spicy notes.
