Hibiki Japanese Harmony; Suntory’s latest blend is composed of more than 10 malt and grain whiskies from Suntory’s Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita (for the grain whiskies) distilleries, and developed by third-generation Master Blender Shingo Torii and fourth-generation Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo.
According to Suntory, Fukuyo used the same key malt and grain whiskey components as the original blend made in 1989 – whiskies aged in American white oak form the base of the blend, and is accentuated by whiskies matured in ex-Sherry casks as well as rare whiskies aged in Mizunara barrels.
Much like the Distillers Reserve, the new Harmony captures the essence of the beloved Hibiki line in a (more) readily available bottling and at a relatively lower price point, after the recent price hikes and supply shortages. Suntory recommends that the versatile Hibiki Japanese Harmony be enjoyed neat, blended with water, mixed as a cocktail, or served with a hand-carved iceball for the “ultimate Japanese whiskey experience.”
