A fantastic Japanese blend, made with aged malt and grain whiskies from Suntory's three distilleries. Spicy and sophisticated, this is great for catching people out at blind tastings. Recently awarded a Gold 'Editor's Choice' award from Whisky Magazine and picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Mark Gillespie, World Whiskies Awards 2012

    • Mild smokiness and toasted oak with hints of nutmeg. Lemon-lime citrus at first, followed by a strong cinnamon blast that fades slowly into the finish as the citrus note returns. Hints of hazelnut, and fading cinnamon.

  • Tasting Notes by Robin Laing, World Whiskies Awards 2012

    • The nose gives tempura cooking oil, donuts, candyfloss and coconut fudge. A warm, pleasant taste of fruity toffee, barley sugar sticks dipped in chocolate and marron glacés, with an attractive heat playing around the mouth.

  • Producer's Note

    • Hibiki, which means harmony, is a master blend of carefully selected full-bodied malt and grain whiskies. This multi award winning blend creates a profound aroma with an elegant and mellow woody richness, accompanied by sweet long-lasting citrus flavour.

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    • Nose

      Ripe soft and pillow like with hints of smoke and toasty wood. Citrus leaf, cocoa, cooked apricot, ripe banana, hazelnut giving a crunch.

    • Palate

      Toffee sweetness stretches along the palate. Very clean and clear. Sweet with sultana and cherry.

    • Finish

      Long and silky.

    • Comment

      Relaxed and laid back. This is excellent blending.

    • Score

      8.5 / 10

  • Tasting notes by Martine Nouet

    • Nose

      Bee wax, polished floor, church bench, candle wax. A tar hint in the back. When aerated, opens up on citrussy notes and barley sugar before a wave of vanilla brings in a sweet brine.

    • Palate

      Smooth, mellow. Velvety. Oak and citrus fruit are intertwined in an elegant two step dance.

    • Finish

      Medium, smooth, hardening up on a more assertive oaky note. Touch of bitter chocolate.

    • Comments

      An elegant and satisfying dram. Well educated, in good quality casks for sure.

    • Score

      8.25 / 10.
