Vic,
Really enjoyable whisky. Reminds me of several scotches that I like. Smooth with just a hint of warming/burn (not harsh). Really enjoyable. Will buy this again.

Nice spice on the front. Pretty smooth Overall. Nice one to enjoy!!
 
Mike
Mike,
Extremely smooth. For me, this was a great introduction to Japanese whisky. I think most whisky drinkers will find great enjoyment from this one. My non whisky drinking wife also found it extremely smooth, but was too “whisky” for her, so it should be perfect for the avid whisky drinker (me). If any one wants to get into Japanese whisky, or take a shot at a higher price point, this one is worth doing so with. It is not my favorite whisky of all time but it is so smooth and good that it has earned a (permanent) spot in my home bar. This was my 3rd taste at a Japanese whisky and out of the 3, this is #1....by far.
Donald
Donald,
What's your favorite?
Conor
Conor,
Oranges and cream. Vanilla. Apricot with a oily, rich, waxiness. This is basically an orange creamsicle in a glass.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Underwhelming for the price. Nice and smooth, but lacking the flavor profile (or my pallet is insufficient) I was hoping for.
 
Kris
Kris,
I absolutely love everything about this whisky. Lovely smells of honey and wood. Creamy, nutty taste. And a perfect finish leaving me wanting more. I will always have a bottle in my home bar!
 
Mark
Mark,
All honey, yum.
 
Robert
Robert,
Nose: light oak. Taste: oak, slightly sweet, floral. Not as impressive as I thought it would be. As mainly a bourbon drinker, this is missing a lot of what I look for. Found it on clearance for $55 and wouldn't pay more for it.
Andrew
Andrew,
My exact impression.
Evan
Evan,
Floral and fruity finish, I pick up a lot of honey with vanilla on the front. I always keep a bottle around.
 
Paul
Paul,
I’ve had a dram and I would say that my first impression is that this is a good but not great whisky that reminds me a little bit of a fruit forward scotch. Nice sipper - nose is pleasant -finish is not what I was hoping for. First foray into Japanese Whisky. I’ll be back for more.
 
Adam
Adam,
Very smooth probably my favorite Japanese Whiskey that I've tried so far

Smooth, light and floral. This is a unique flavor and a bottle I want to always have around.
 
Eitan
Eitan,
The second Japanese whisky I’ve tried; the first was one of the Yamazaki’s. The flavor spiral definitely describes the profile of this. I mostly picked up the honey, orange zest, vanilla, and some slight peat. The finish keeps the sweetness, and is smooth throughout. After letting it sit for a little longer, the flavor becomes more fruity, with apple and grape appearing. Will be permanent in my cabinet.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Really smooth an d well balanced!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Very smooth, but I longed for a more pronounced finish at this price point

Buttery goodness.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
For a whisky named Harmony I was expecting something smoother. There is a zesty oak flavor that I wasn’t looking for when I chose a pricey Japanese bottle. However, adding a piece of ice took away the bite and opened it up nicely with some enjoyable oak, honey, and citrus, and a dry smokey finish.
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Sweet. Smooth.
 
Darren
Darren,
Very delicious. Smooth with a little oak and zest.
 
Brad
Brad,
Not a fan. Maybe it’s because I had it on the heels of a Yamazaki 18, but the finish left me wanting more.

Reuben
Reuben,
Nice addition to the bar. The finish is not exceptional for the price; a bit harsh.
 
Todd
Todd,
Little spice on nose and tongue. Hangs around just a brief bit and then smooth aftertaste with little burn. Great alone; add a small chill(NO ICE) to it, splash of coke makes you want the whole bottle. For me;the bottle price is $12 more than what I pay at liquor store..when available, so it's worth it.
 
guest
guest,
Wow.
 
Michael
Michael,
Harsh smell but smooth from start to finish on the palate.
 
Andy
Andy,
just splendid! Nose is very pleasant, oak and honey. Warm inviting mouth, not super full bodied, a little watery. Very sweet bouncing between floral, honey and wood and hints of fruit and zest. Mouthwatering and Very smooth. I Love the finish! Not overpowering but constantly lingering and changing. Started with chocolate and Orange zest. Then some random berry/fruit and more oak.

Very elegant in flavor profile. This encompasses what Japan is known for...refinement and beauty. The bottle itself can become an infinity bottle once you are done with it.
 
Richard

Dat
Dat,
I used to think that blends aren't as flavorful as pure single malt. And then I had Johnnie Walker Platinum and that piqued my interest. And then I had the Johnnie Walker Blue and I was amazed. And then I had this Hibiki Harmony and the floor was swept from under me. Holy concoction of life giving elixir, batman! I would give this a 9.5 on the WOW scale if I could. I have yet to taste anything that would qualify as a perfect 10, and for comparison, the Macallan Rare Cask Batch #1 2018 is top-notch at 9.8 for me. This Hibiki is a must-try for anyone who believes that Blended Whiskey cannot match the flavor & impact of Single Malt. Everything about it screams for 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th. I just wish there were more of it available. Are you listening, Suntory?
 
Michael
Michael,
my favorite Japanese whisky. Very much like a Scotch

Derek
Derek,
I like it neat to taste all history of Japanese whiskey. The grain flavors are profound and subtle at the same time.
 
Landis
Landis,
Still hard to get but not as hard as getting the aged varieties. It's hard to remind myself that I need to make it last. I love it neat and will have water with ice on the side if I don't want the buzz to hit too fast.

Alexander

Love it ! May suffer from over blended syndrome. But still a very smooth dram. Easy sipping.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Great flavor. Though, I believe it was a slightly different taste than what I have received in Japan. Perhaps a simply a different year/blend?
 
Jason
Jason,
One of the best Japanese whiskeys I've tried. Smooth overall and flavorful throughout the finish.
 
John
John,
Reminded me of drinking egg nog at Christmas. I don’t think it lives up to its reputation but it is an extremely pleasant dram.
 
Ian
Ian,
Hibiki is full of character and much more complex than a typical bourbon or one-note scotch. Harmony is a very accurate descriptor because all of your favorite parts of a scotch are married here to the best characteristics of a more mellow Kentucky-style dram. Smoke but just enough, dry but satisfying, and above all Balanced with each flavor practically singing a campfire kumbaya with one another on the palate. This is a perfect expression to match the name, and a great scotch to enjoy neat, chilled, or with a single rock or ice ball.
 
Michael
Michael,
A beautiful bottle with a great taste. Very smooth and well balanced. Can’t ever go wrong with this drink.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Extremely tasty Japanese spirit. Poured neat over a single ice cube you experience notes of oak, sweetness reminiscent of honey, and a savory smoke that washes over your pallet. A tad bit spicy on the finish but nothing that distracts from the complexity of the flavors, if anything it adds to it. Great looking on the shelf and a hit to share with close friends or perfect for celebrating a special occasion
 
Michael
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.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
I love this whisky. So easy to drink, nice floral notes and the taste of apples or some other fruit. Easily the best whisky I’ve had so far.
 
Lou
Lou,
Lovely. Your typical extremely balanced, nuanced, and delicate Japanese whisky with a good about of body and more punch them some of the lighter stuff.
 
Gilbert
Gilbert,
Not much to envy from the Hibiki 12 and Hibiki 17 Very soft, smooth flavor, definitely not the money of the other Hibiki's but the taste belong for sure. GO
 
Steve
Steve,
A very enjoyable whisky. Best one from Japan that I have tasted thus far. Very drinkable on its own and leaves you wanting some more.
 
Alex
Alex,
Tried it for the first time 2 months ago and fell in love with this whisky. Fruity on the nose and well balanced between smoky, spicy, and fruity on the palate. Great presentation that’ll look good on any shelf.
 
Eric

Great Japanese blended whiskey. Very, very clean and very smooth. Probably easiest whiskey to drink around. Go to Whiskey when in doubt, and great value for the money.

Very tasty, easy to drink
 
Eric
Eric,
- nose: stone fruit, pineapple, honey, sweet chocolate - Palate: smooth, lite fruits, clementine orange zest, burnt caramel - Finish: mild finish with light oak and oddest sour touch at the end - Lite and easy drinking - 7 our of 10
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Delicious notes of honey and citrus with smokey undertones. Enjoy neat or on the rocks.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
This is my favorite japanese whisky. it's very similar to an irish whiskey, due to it's sweeter, friendlier flavor. Plays very well neat, or on the rocks. Haven't tried in a mix drink, and using it like that would feel like a waste of such a delicious drink. Definitely buying this since it just came back into stock.
 
Chuck
Chuck,
Harmony is the right word. On the nose, the honey and mild smoke combine for a very pleasant barbecue note. Smooth mixed fruit and pepper in the mouth and sweet lingering chocolate on the finish. Wonderful!
 
Art
Art,
Hibiki is my favorite or the Japanese Whisky’s, very smooth after just 10 minutes on a large single cube. Yum, that will promote “harmony” in uour life!

This whiskey is very smooth and great tasting. I bought it along with the Nikka Coffey Grain Whiskey and both were great but the Nikka was slightly better tasting and equally as smooth for my tastes. Recommend both but if you have to choose one I recommend the Nikka.

One of my favorites, it's light, smooth, and carries a great balance of spice and malt notes.

Flavor is great. Would definitely re-buy. Not as smooth as advertised but worth it for the finish.

It's been over 20 years since I've sipped any Suntory in the United States. This new bottle of Hibiki is best (IMHO) with a splash of water to mellow out while sipping.

For my first step into Japanese Whisky...What a treat! The aroma was a pleasure and the sip fills the mouth with subtle flavors which show this to be a top notch addition to any collection. I was greatly impressed and will be adding more Japanese whiskies to my home bar.

Chris,
So good, you'll forget it's a blend. Sweet, complex, smooth. What a blend should be: a mix of whiskies to produce an intended flavor. You listening JW?

Great first Japanese whisky for a novice but it will easily be overshadowed and outshined by its 12 yo big brother.

Smooth but not a lot of taste. Doesn't linger on the palate

Excellent harmony. Best Japanese whiskey I have tried. Comparable to blantons.

Joseph,
It's difficult to put words to the exact flavours I could pull out of this whisky but I can speak to the feelings that it causes in me. 'Harmony' is probably the best word to describe the experience that is this whisky; very balanced, yet complex collection of flavours throughout the dram that stir up a feeling of "just getting home after a long day" with every sip. Warning: reaching the end of the bottle is an especially sad moment.

Cheyne,
Longest finish I've ever had on a non-age-statement whisky. Caramel, vanilla, dried fruits, it's initial palate is certainly light and youthful, but the finish is so deep and warming. My first venture into Japanese spirits, and definitely not to be the last.
