Suntory has officially launched its latest whisky expression with the release of Hibiki Japanese Harmony.

Hibiki Japanese Harmony (43% ABV) has been launched in response to global demand for Japanese whisky, and has been inspired by the riches and subtleties of the 24 Japanese seasons.

This latest release is made up from a blend of whiskies from the House of Suntory, incorporating ten malt and grain whiskies, aged in five types of casks, from the three Suntory distilleries.

Hibiki Japanese Harmony uses the same key malt and grain whiskies from the original Hibiki 17 and 21 Year Old blends, including rare Mizunara oak and sherry cask whisky and Chita grain whisky.

Commenting on this latest release, Shinji Fukuyo, Chief Blender at Suntory, said: “In philosophy and making, Hibiki Japanese Harmony is the new dawn of Hibiki, optimizing the same key malt and grain whiskies from the original Hibiki blend. I envisioned a luminous harmony of flavours and aromas. A pure and simultaneously complex harmony that was at the core of every Hibiki blend.”

Hibiki Japanese Harmony will be available from selected specialist retailers for a RRP of £53.49.
