Suntory Old was first produced in Japan in the 1940s, at a time when blended whisky was all the rage and the single malt category was yet to develop into what it is today. Fine blends were seen as the pinnacle of the whisky world at this time, in both Japan and Scotland, with the best Master Blenders being akin to today’s Michelin Star Chefs, pulling the very best ingredients and putting them together in a way that amazed those lucky enough to get a taste.
This brand new Suntory Old Limited Edition 2022 brings everything that has made this wonderful blend hugely popular over years and much much more.
The whisky inside is as smooth as it has ever been, delivering a fabulous, light drinking experience that keeps you coming back for more. Poached pears, summer fruits and dried berries mingle perfectly with nutmeg and cinnamon spice, all the while soft , buttery vanilla builds in the background. It’s a fantastic flavour profile and one that has been worked on and mastered over half a century.
Released to celebrate the Zodiac animal for 2022 – the majestic Tiger – it comes with an elegantly designed label depicting the marvelous creature in all its glory. Quantities of this one are highly limited.
