A birthday gift from my fantastically excellent sister, Hannah, our first Japanese Whisky.
"Kanzen" or complete, Hibiki Whisky is a harmonious blend of innumerous malt and grain whiskies which are meticulously blended to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas.
Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki Whisky celebrates an unrivaled art of blending, fine craftsmanship and a sense of luxury from the House of Suntory.
From its launch, Hibiki Whisky has been embraced as the paragon of The Art of Japanese Whisky, the very product of Japanese nature and her people.
Hibiki Whisky is not only Japan’s most highly awarded blended whisky, but among the most prestigious and honoured whiskies in the world.
