Hibiki 'Japanese Harmony' Masters Select Suntory Whisky

Launched in March 2015, this is yet another NAS addition to Suntory's sought after "Hibiki" series. More exclusive than the standard Harmony bottling, it is the first Hibiki created for the global duty free market. A blend of more than ten malt and grain whiskies which are aged in five different types of casks from the Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita distilleries, Suntory chief blender Shinji Fukuyo was involved in its creation, while production is overseen by the third generation master blender and great-grandson of Suntory founder, Shingo Torii. Beautifully presented in the brand's trademark 24-faceted bottle representing the Japanese seasons.

Bright brass colour shows impeccable purity. Initial pass finds subdued, resinous, woody aromas. Remains frustratingly shy over five to six minutes. Extended air contact finally amplifies the bouquet beyond mediocre, releasing attractive fragrances of dusty cocoa, dates, oak shavings, cinnamon and pepper. Light entry. Medium bodied mid palate expands the flavour range with dried fruits, hazelnut, light cocoa and peppery warmth. Finish finds wood spice and wood shavings followed by a subtle vanilla and honey undercurrent carrying the aftertaste. Improves over time, ending up richer and more robust than most Japanese blends at its level.

Nikka From the Barrel Japanese Whisky
The history and evolution of the Japanese Whisky scene can be traced back to one man, Masataka Taketsuru; a man known as the 'father of Japanese whisky'. Taketsuru not only left Japan to learn the craft from the experts in Scotland, he also crafted Japan's first whisky at the Yamazaki distillery before establishing the premium whisky house of Nikka in 1934. This unique bottling of 'From the Barrel' is a breathtaking blend of malt and grain whiskies that are hand selected, blended together and then reintroduced to cask upon their marriage. The result is a blend that possesses a distinctive personality characterised by solidity, depth of taste and a richly expanding aroma.

Nikka Red Pure Malt Whisky
After a long absence from the Australian market, we've finally managed to secure some world class Japanese whiskies from the Nikka distillery, Japan’s second largest whisky producer after Suntory. Now owned by the brewer Asahi, the company was originally set up by Masataka Taketsuru, who built Yoichi distillery in 1934, having previously spent two years studying the art of distilling in Scotland. (He also developed the now famous 'Yamazaki' distillery in Kyoto for Suntory which he managed for ten years). Nikka's range of blended, pure malt and single malt whiskies will be exciting new discoveries for any Whisky enthusiast.

Bright, deep gold. Nosing hints at bubblegum, toasted cereals and later orange peel - even dried mango? Sedate entry builds into a juicy, fruity malt surge followed by a fresh, mildly peppery and lozenge like finish. Crisp oak rounds the whisky off in perfect balance.
