Part of the new Suntory whisky range, “The Essence of Suntory” will be released on February 27th, 2018. The new range features fresh, new bottle designs and gorgeous labels showcasing modern Japanese art. Three expressions have been announced so far, one by Yamazaki, one by the Hakushu distillery, and one from Suntory’s grain distillery, Chita.
A single grain, rye whisky from Hakushu? Now, that’s new. This 4 year-old expression is expected to deliver rich, deep spice, borne through the use of rye. Paired with the green, fruity Hakushu character, the balance will be immense. This beauty will be released at a staggering 57% ABV, in 500ml bottles.
NOTE: This is a pre-order. The Japanese release date is the 27th of February, therefore, shipping will commence soon after that date.
