Hibiki Blossom Harmony 2022 Bottling Note

Hibiki Blossom Harmony 2022 is a limited-edition Japanese blended whisky released by Suntory. The name “Hibiki” translates to “resonance” in Japanese, reflecting Suntory’s philosophy of harmony with nature and people. This philosophy extends to the whisky itself, which is known for its complex and balanced flavor profile.

The Blossom Harmony 2022 is a special iteration within the Hibiki range. Details of the specific malt and grain whiskies used in the blend have not been revealed, but it is known to contain a blend of Chita, Yamazaki, and Hakushu. This contributes to the whisky’s layered character. Some reviewers noted hints of floral notes, likely due to the expert blending process.

The bottle’s label features a vibrant depiction of spring blossoms, adding a touch of elegance to any celebratory occasion, while the carton design evokes the splendor of a traditional Japanese banquet.

Like other Hibiki releases, Blossom Harmony 2022 is bottled at 43% alcohol by volume (ABV) and came in a standard 700ml size. Compared to Hibiki Blossom Harmony 2021, Hibiki Blossom Harmony 2022 has a mellower aroma and a fruity taste.

Hibiki Blossom Harmony 2022 Tasting Note

A gentle wave of ginger and white pepper spice adds warmth and complexity, while fleeting floral notes, possibly influenced by sakura cask aging, delicately dance on the tongue.
