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.

Kanpai!

In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
