The legendary Hibiki represents true harmony.
The enigma of perfection, the paragon of the art of whisky and the art of Japan’s artisans.
Hibiki, meaning resonance in Japanese, speaks to the soul and emotions of the most discerning whisky lover. Hibiki resonates from nature, and all the subtleties found from the twenty four seasons of the old Japanese lunar calendar. Numerous types of pure single malt whiskies ageing in various types of casks, including Mizunara, a very rare Japanese oak, all combine to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas.
Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki celebrates the unrivaled art of blending, fine craftsmanship, and sense of luxury of the House.
Bearing the seal of the House of Suntory, this majestic blend is its rightful paragon.

Light amber/yellow color. Flowers and spice greet the olfactory sense in waves. On palate, there’s a keen nuttiness (walnut) and a bitterness that work well in tandem at entry, then the midpalate turns caramel-like and mildly sweet.
