Suntory Hibiki Japanese Harmony Master's Select

The Harmony was filled for a limited edition for the Travel Retail. Yamazaki set the main focus on the note of sherry. The aroma differs significantly from one in the Harmony Bottling.

If you define harmony as 'pleasing combination of parts in a whole', then Suntory has found the perfect name for this Japanese NAS blend. On the nose, Hibiki combines fresh fruits, sandalwood and coconut candies with floral vanilla, burned toast and hints of sawdust. Tastewise, it's not easy to spot individual notes. Honey sweetness, orange zest and perhaps some bitter green tea? The finish is subtle, creamy and with a spicy touch of Mizunara oak. Quite harmonious and enjoyable indeed - but also an expensive reminder that harmony is not very exciting.
