Tasting Notes

What we've all been waiting for; a new whisky from Suntory, at a great price that will hopefully stay in stock! Make no mistake, Suntory deserves all of the attention they are getting as pioneers of Japanese Whisky, one of the hottest spirit categories in the world. The explosion of excitement has, predictably so, depleted stocks and put many beloved whiskies on strict allocations. Toki is, hopefully, the remedy for now. The blend plays off of a primary marriage of American Oak aged Hakushu single malts and heavy-type grain whisky from the firms Chita distillery. Filling it out are carefully selected single malts from the Yamazaki Distillery aged in both American and Spanish oak. As a result the whisky is rich and harmonious, oozing with character seemingly effortlessly. Notes include green apple, white peach, vanilla custard, toasted cereal and wood spice. Very fun to drink on its own, this mouth-watering whisky is especially nice in a highball.

Staff Pick Notes

Finally, finally, finally! A return to inventive, exotic, and (most importantly) well priced whisky. Which is what I and many other wine and spirits professionals liked about Japanese whisky in the first place. In the past few years due to certain publications (I shan’t name names) Japanese whisky has reached near Pappy Van Winkle level of demand. Which has made most of the bottles in the U.S and international markets reach three and even four digit prices. Like anything in this world there’s only so much you will pay before you say, “Forget it!” Which is why I was so happy when I first tasted this. Banana flambé, shaved coconut, vanilla cream, brown sugar, roasted nuts, all woven together with smoke and spices. Finally, delicious Japanese whisky that won’t cost me a month’s rent. Let's hope it stays that way...
