A vivid harmony where old meets new.

Suntory… today the name virtually defines the beverage business in Japan. Founded in 1899 to import and distribute wine, they quickly branched out into their own products in 1907. In 1923, they stepped out again, this time into the nearly sacrilegious effort of distilling a single malt Whisky in Japan. But the dogmatic traditionalist of the spirit-loving West soon forgave Suntory’s heresy for the most pragmatic of reasons… they made great Whisky and pioneered the delicate and problematic use of Mizunara Oak in the process.

In the 90 years since then, Suntory has expanded through homegrown brands and the acquisition of established business around the world. Perhaps most notable of which was their acquisition to American distiller Beam, Inc. in 2014. Not too shabby. Their various holdings produce dozens of Whiskies, Beers, Liqueurs, and soft drinks that span the globe.

Toki is a blend of Suntory’s Hakushu and Yamazaki and Whiskies from Chita distilleries. It’s an unique marriage of Hakushu American white oak cask malt Whisky and Chita’s heavy-type grain Whisky, resulting in a well-balanced and harmonious blend that is Suntory Whisky Toki.

Toki means “time” in Japanese and this Whisky resurrected a popular Japanese tradition of a Highball cocktail.

SmartAss Corner
The Highball is an artful blend of Whisky and sparkling water over a generous serving of ice.

Nice and clean but nothing spectacular
Nicholas
Nicholas,
It is a malt and grain blend, delicate flavors overall, the initial light fruity profile is very nice, and there is no harshness in the experience.

Perfect for a high ball !!

Very light, but I enjoyed the flavor. I am currently working through the Japanese whiskys, and this is on the softer end of the spectrum.

Can taste the sweetness, smells light taste medium,

Compared to the Hibiki Suntory this whiskey is very lacking. Smooth, but pretty bland overall with very little distinction as far as flavors. It's a decent whiskey but nothing overly special.
Jon
Jon,
My first Japanese Whisky. The spiceness is definitely there, a few drops of water really bring out the auroma.

Really fantastic!

too light, need more complexity
Brett
Brett,
Very smooth. This was my first from japan, but definitely not my last. Fairly young on the palette, but still some slight burn. Was enjoyable neat, but really opened up with a few drops of high TDS water (I use Evian). Would recommend if you get the chance.

Smooth, with a bit of spice. Great straight or as an old fashion.

Solid, a little young on the pallet but a good performer, can do better for similar money IMHO

Very well blended! If you ever liked any Suntory liquors this is an even keeled and warm, honey suckled flavored drink. A bit on the bite end with a tad bit of high proof burn at first... this goes away with continued sips. Flavor opens up even more so with a few drops of water. I would hate to mix this with any thing, you get all the best of the mixed whiskeys in one spot! Making this a daily favorite.

Smooth and mildly spicy. Elegant blend. I love it. This goes great with cigars, I'd say it's made for it.

One of my favorite Japanese whiskeys. (That you can actually get your hands on!)
Erik
Erik,
It's okay. It's sweeter than I like, like a Jack Daniels.
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Being new to Japanese whisky, I enjoyed the smoky and slight peppery flavor (I thought it would be more prominent). Very pleased with this product. But my wife is not a fan.
Todd

I love the sweet pepper and smoky taste

CIL,
I have tried Suntory at whiskey tastings and I have bought it on occasion because of its ether-like presence on the tongue [it is not Yamazaki (sic?)].

Not as spicy as the spiral would lead you to believe. Definitely finishes with smoke and is overall solid.

Light and spicy, this is a great whiskey for sipping or mixing into a highball. Doesn't have the same "staying power" as the Hibiki, but still an excellent choice for a good price.

Highball, also good in Mizuwari... has enough character with enough delicate nuances of a Japanese whisky
James
James,
If you're new to Japanese whiskey, Toki and Harmony are both excellent choices. Given the price point, Toki is very accessible, and the flavor is what I would describe as the essence of Japanese whiskey - nothing more, nothing less. If you dislike Toki, you probably won't enjoy other Japanese whiskeys but once you move past Toki, you'll probably seldom return.

David
David,
A great whisky that is smooth and easy to drink. Neither demanding nor overpowering it is great after dinner or at the end of the day. Enjoyable at a good price point. .
Christian
Christian,
I was fortunate enough to go to a launch party for this spirit. I actually thought is wasps smooth as Suntori's other, more expensive products.
Paul
Paul,
I just want you to know that it is about 40 dollars at your local stores
Alexis
Alexis,
While not as smooth as its more expensive label mates, the sweet and spicy character make it a good anytime whisky.
