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.

Comment:
A bit disappointing for the price range. Generally lacking in flavor compared to the Master's Select or age statement variety.
