There’s nothing like Hibiki.

In 1923, Shinjiro Torri decided to bring Japan a Whisky full of true Nippon essence – inspired by the Highlands of Scotland, but born in Kyoto. Then, in 1989, the year of tectonic changes in the world, Suntory Hibiki is released, starting an era of Japanese Whisky renaissance and an arms race to perfection.

Hibiki Whisky is a masterful blend of Yamazaki Malt, Hakushu (matured in American oak, Mizunara oak, and Sherry casks), and grain Whiskies from Chita. It’s a harmony of characters and flavors; a supergroup or an orchestra of the finest Spirits.

Okay, all this sounds cool, but is it any good? Hell yeah, it’s good. This Master’s Select is exclusive and limited, and since Hibiki itself is one of the most prestigious Japanese Whiskies, and this expression is their ritziest, you’re in for an elite treat.

Lovely but a little too powerful for a perfect score.

Light body with the sweetness of plums, vanilla, and oak.

Kay,
This is the most elegant and (at the risk of sounding sexist) feminine blended whisky that I've had. I don't mean this is a "girly drink" or it takes like cupcakes. This whisky has many qualities you'd associate with feminine scents like vanilla and floral characteristics. There's also a gentle sweetness that carries this whisky from beginning to end. Perhaps if you are used to big Scotches, this may be a turn off. You really need to take this whisky as it is and enjoy it as a brand new experience. As Suntory's flagship blended label, Hibiki is unapologetic in its artistic vision. And it's execution is spot on perfect.

Michael,
Nose has bright, sweet floral tones (honeysuckle, vanilla) with a deeper sandalwood/cedar-like spice note beneath. Flavors bloom softly in the mouth with vanilla and light caramel up front, before progressing into citrus zest, light fruit, spices (nutmeg, white pepper,) and oak going into a dry finish with hints of cocoa powder and light smoke. Mouth feel is smooth and easy without being insubstantial, and alcohol is gently warming. The label talks about harmony and you can take Suntory at their word- the balance of sweet/spicy/smokey/bitter here make this just a great all-around whisky. (Note- this review was originally posted to the regular Hibiki Harmony by mistake.)
