For Hibiki Japanese Harmony whisky, the Suntory makers rely on their own-sourced malt and grain whiskies. Depending on the type, they come from the Yamazaki, Hakushu or Chita distilleries and mature in different types of casks, including sherry casks and casks made from the rare Japanese oak wood called Mizunara. The aesthetically pleasing 24-faceted bottle is meant to represent the 24 “mini seasons” of Japan. The label is made of precious Echizen paper.
The taste of Hibiki Suntory Whisky Japanese Harmony is composed of orange, apricot, oak wood, white chocolate, cinnamon and slightly peppery spices. A scent of rose petals should also be recognisable. The exact number and age of the whiskies contained remains a mystery that only the Suntory master blender seems to know.
