Last time we were in Japan, we brought back a bottle of Suntory Hibiki Whisky, and discovered one of the best blended whiskeys around! It is smooth without the sweet and warms you nicely.
Suntory Whisky is the product that brings Bob “Bill Murray” to Japan in the movie Lost in Translation. Which gives this brand some much deserved attention, they have been making whisky and other liqueurs in Japan since the 1850s. Suntory also makes the popular melon liqueur “Midori.”
