Suntory Pure Malt Whisky Set
Only 1 left in stock
Suntory is the oldest whisky making company in Japan. Its origins stretch back to a small shop, started in 1899 by Torii Shinjiro, which specialised in selling imported wines. One of Suntory’s older products, this Pure Malt Whisky ‘Black’ and ‘White’ set is a true delight. It comes in tastefully designed bottles, enclosed in boxes. A set for the collectors out there, or for those who just can’t say no to Suntory whisky.
Suntory is a giant in the whisky producing field. It has produced innumerable award winning whiskies for both the domestic and export markets. Of these, both the single malts of Yamazaki and Hakushu often make the headlines but the distillery group also produces the sensational (and multiple award winning) Hibiki blended whisky, (aged at 12yo, 17yo, 21 yo and 30 yo) using spirit from the aforementioned distilleries as well as grain whisky from their Chita production plant. The 12yo Hibiki is noted for its fragrant, fruity aroma, which it partly obtains from additional maturation using Ume Plum Wine casks.
Nose: Smooth, quite heavy sherry. Oak, raisins, stone fruit (plums?), toffee, wood stain. What seems like a touch of peat or smoke. Palate: Ripe stone fruit, Christmas cake, milk chocolate, raisins, wood stain, and again, that hint of smoke/burnt, twigs/matches…. or something along those lines. Well balanced. Finish: Spicy, raisins, plums, chocolate, mint. Warming on the chest and of medium length. A little dry.
