Suntory-Hibiki-Blossom-Harmony-Japanese-Whisky

There were a number of great Japanese whiskies we mourned the loss of last year, but 2021 is off to bang with a new Suntory whisky that will surely end up on multiple “Best Of” lists this year. Suntory Hibiki Blossom Harmony Japanese Whisky is a blend of Hibiki Whisky with whisky finished in cherry barrels, which makes it the first blend to be aged in Sakura wood barrels. This “meticulous blend of select finest whiskies” represents a number of firsts for the brand, along with the creation of a spirit that properly pays homage to the cherry blossoms it draws its inspiration from. Suntory Hibiki Blossom Harmony Japanese Whisky will go on sale in limited quantities in Japan on May 25th at a recommended retail price of 8,000 Yen (about $77 USD). There’s no word yet on an international release, but we’re fairly certain a Japanese whiskey with an aroma reminiscent of the cherry blossoms will certainly end up on the list of Best Japanese Whiskies.
