Suntory Chita Whisky

A mild, smooth single grain whisky, the first of its kind from Suntory, with unparalleled sophistication
and a clean, clear finish.

Chief Blender, Shinji Fukuyo describes The Chita Single Grain Whisky as the “serenity of Japanese whisky.” Drawing on the misty, calm seas of the Chita Peninsula on a day of elegant stillness, this is an airy whisky with a serene presence.

A perfect and refreshing summertime dram.

Suntory Hakushu 12

  • A perennial favourite and a must-try for anyone interested in discovering Japanese whisky. Hakushu is owned by Suntory, founders of the first Japanese distillery, Yamazaki. The original Hakushu distillery was built in 1973, with another distillery building called Hakushu Higashi (west) added in 1981.
  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Hakushu is the Japanese connoisseurs choice. The distillery, which was built in 1973 and is set amidst spectacular pine forests close to Japanese Alps.

    Hakushu 12yo has aroma of pears, crushed leafy bracken a hint of citrus. You can enjoy subtle smokiness and the sweet poached pears on the palate.

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    Nose: Light and grassy and slightly stony to start. In time there’s sweet persimmon and nut.

    Palate: Pure and very clean. Sweet lime, green fruits then a hint of smoke and a buttery meadow sweet/chamomile note. Light to the point of fragility.

    Finish:  Honey, lemon and a little ginger.

    Comment: Delicacy to the fore. A breakfast dram if there were ever one.

  • Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet

    Nose: Fruity and sweet. Ripe cherry plums, almond milk, acacia honey.

    Palate: Smooth and velvety. A caressing feel, quite thick. Good balance. As fruity as on the nose. Plums with a hint of prunes.

    Finish: Medium, with a pleasant dry spiciness. Soothes down on an almondy note.

    Comment: A perfectly balanced dram. Fruit and spices mingle gently.

Yamazaki Puncheon 2013

A bottle of Yamazaki Puncheon from the 2013 Cask Collection, the final year of the series. Aged in 480 litre oak Puncheon, this is a rich and sweet Japanese whisky, but one that is elegant due to the slightly slower ageing caused by the smaller spirit to wood ratio.

Price £1,100.00

Suntory Yamazaki 18

A wonderful example of what Japanese whisky is capable of. We absolutely love this. Extremely smooth, with great complexity and a lovely balance of fruit, silky malt and a touch of smoke.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Yamazaki 18yo is the multi award winning whisky. It is proudly awarded SWSC Double Gold Medal in 2005, IWSC Trophy in 2006 and ISC Gold in 2007.

    The richness of sherry and raisins fill the nose then its dark rich maraschino cherries and finally coffee cream chocolate appear. Full body malt.

  • Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    This one was matured in sherry casks. The nose is very woody, in a nice way, with some varnish, turpentine. A beautiful balance. Some very soft tannins… Extremely oaky but masterfully crafted. The mouth is superbly balanced, with lots of orange juice and spices. Creamy yet nervous, with all sorts of fruit syrups and jams. Besides, the finish is very long. I loved this one: 90 points.

Suntory Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015

box slightly damaged

The Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015 will be available in Japan from 26 May. As the name suggests, it is a limited edition that may disappear quite quickly because nowadays Japanese whiskies meet a huge success over the archipelago and the world.

This new nectar created by Suntory Chief Master Blender is an blend of several single malts distilled and aged in Yamazaki, the very first malt distillery of Japan.

On the menu of this whisky bottled at 43%, some single malts aged for over 20 years in Sherry Casks, and some "Young Talents" which are relatively young but already revealing an intense character single malts aged in Bourbon Barrels.

For this new 2015 version, a collector's bottle was created with the stills of the distillery painted in the background, plus a nice case proudly displaying the golden sign of Yamazaki wrote in Japanese.

Despite a recommended price of 10,000 Yen, this new Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015 will be quickly sold out in liquor stores, and thereafter will only be available on auction sites...

Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2016

Suntory Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2016 was a highly anticipated expression with the previous release having been giving the World Whisky of the Year title in the 2015 Jim Murrat whisky bible.
