Japanese whiskey Hibiki(響) is made by Suntory whiskey distillery, which is the most famous whiskey maker in Japan. Of all Japanese whiskeys including single malt and blend, Hibiki can even be said to be the best.

Japanese Harmony Hibiki (響)

Hibiki was originally made in 1989, on the 90th anniversary year of Suntory. The name "Hibiki" (Harmony in Japanese) came from the company's philosophy, which is to harmonize people with their product.

Hibiki is actually a blend of several different kinds of whiskeys. Only the skilled blenders are allowed to make the blending of Hibiki. This is how they keep the quality of their product at a high level.

Besides the newly bottled whiskeys, Hibiki has several kinds of aged bottles too. There are 17 years, 21 years, and surprisingly even 30 years aged. (very limited)

The unique 24 faceted bottle represents the 24 seasons of Japan. The taste is characteristically smooth with some orange peel and oak essence.

How to enjoy your Hibiki whiskeys

Compared to the other whiskeys such as Scotch and American, Japanese whiskeys including Hibiki have a very smooth well-balanced flavour. This is why they go perfectly well with your daily dishes.

The most popular way to enjoy whiskey in Japan is in highballs (a drink made by adding some soda to your whiskey)

Highballs go well with karaage (Japanese fried chicken, this combination is often called "hai-kara", highball and karaage).

Quite sure I'm a Ramen freak. Almost up to 200ramens in 2017. Not only ramens but also love to eat around and drink around.
