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.

What does Suntory Toki taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Suntory Toki and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Ratings & Reviews
James
James,
One of my favorites. Extremely smooth. Great in a hot whisky, on the rocks, or on its own!
 
Robert
Robert,
I've only had one other Japanese whiskey before so I don't have experience in comparing. This one was very good but viewed as "very strong". Wasn't any burn afterward but definitely was more earthy than I expected. The unique very light color was nice and attractive to serve.
 
Rob
Rob,
Very different from my whiskey experience, but what a great kind of different. As with a lot of the reviews this was my first foray into Japanese whiskies. I was surprised by the lighter color and got a slight hint of ginger and honey. The finish had a bit of a bite, but had a good vanilla aftertaste. I highly recommend.
 
Luke
Luke,
Different tasting. First foray into Japanese whiskey and I like it.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Very bright with a clean finish. First time with Japanese whiskey. Will be trying the Hibiki Harmony next.

light, not very bold. Great for the summer or hot fire place
 
Dave
Dave,
Very rubbing alcohol-like. Not for a sipping whisky...might be better used for highballs?

CARL,
Nothing special, I’ll drink It, but wouldn’t buy again.
 
Greg
Greg,
This is terrific! It's complex enough to give you some nice flavor but not overwhelming in any way. Just a nice, solid utility scotch! For $30, it's hard to beat.
 
Richard
Richard,
This one, will not disappoint.
 
Jon
Jon,
Drinks easy this was my first Japanese whiskey and I am pleasantly surprised.
 
Johnathan
Johnathan,
Rey clean, almost crisp. Maybe a little light on the heavier flavors, but subtle and a nice one to sip on... especially for that price
 
Captain
Captain,
Very smooth, easy on the palate. Great stuff for the price. Good sipping whiskey. Definitely recommend.

Very smooth, light and refreshing
 
Jinsey
Jinsey,
Too smoky and not very smooth.
 
Ian
Ian,
Herbal notes, reminiscent of scotch. Very oaky with a tannic bite. I've seen this whisky priced anywhere from $23-50, I would recommend trying to pick it up more around the $30 mark.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
As light as the color, so too is the flavor. For a 43% alcohol content whisky, it is amazingly smooth. A must have for a very low price
 
Martin
Martin,
really easy and smooth not a large amount of complicated flavors at this price point a nice bottle

hard to taste the grapefruit

Alfred
Alfred,
Extra smooth. Ginger Ale and Toki is the new after work staple.
 
Doug
Doug,
This Whisky is light in color, light on the taste and not the smoothest. I would not say this is the best Japanese whiskey i've had. It's not terrible and it definitely drinkable, but i wont be buying a case to have in storage anytime soon.

Mild with some oak hints and a slight spice on the way down. Inexpensive casual sipper for any occasion

Love it. Very smooth, very affordable great quality whiskey.
 
Shannon
Shannon,
Unique flavor! Hits like a scotch and finishes with a smooth Irish Whiskey feel to it. Perfect with just one ice cube.
 
Vince
Vince,
This is a brilliant inexpensive selection. I was so impressed with this both neat and over ice. Several reviews here nail the profile - nice blend of bitter and sweet. And the bitter is not harsh, just flavorful, rivaling the best scotch whiskies. Definitely staying in my rotation.
 
Brandy
Brandy,
This is easy to drink neat. Smooth and sweet finish, but a bit of a harsh start.
 
Marcus
Marcus,
At 21 years old I am new to whiskey and this is definitely an easy sipper. Sweet, but it also has a bite to it which gives it an interesting taste. Tried mine neat and in a wedged ice glass.
 
Mark
Mark,
I was very surprised. A very smooth, easy drinking whiskey. I’m impressed. I will definitely be revisiting this great whiskey again.
 
sheldon
sheldon,
Sweet finish but you have to get to it. Has a kind of a harsher start.
 
Sean
Sean,
Not sure at first...the more I tasted...the more I enjoyed the Japanese take on whiskey.
 
Phil
Phil,
The Japanese can make a great whisky. This one is a bit sweeter with a smooth finish. For the price, you won't find many better options. Great enjoying neat, on rocks, or with your favorite blend - I'd pair with ingredients that can take advantage of the sweet flavor. (Check your local store as I find it overpriced here.)
 
Neil
Neil,

This was what turn me into japanese whiskey, what an amazing blended whiskey, its smooth oh so smooth, i had trouble going back to drinking American Whiskeys after trying this bottle and the whole line. Looove it.

Not overpowering, but has a pleasant sweetness and flavor. An excellent starter bourbon and it won’t bite you.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
It's cheap. Picked up a couple bottles at Costco. Had low expectations since Suntory removed age statements and decided to go blended. To my surprise, it was very easy to drink. The bottle went fast.
 
Trevor
Trevor,
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 !!
 
John
John,
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.
 
guest
guest,
Can taste the sweetness, smells light taste medium,
 
Mathew
Mathew,
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.
 
Sean
Sean,
Really fantastic!
 
guest
guest,
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.
 
anthony
anthony,
Smooth, with a bit of spice. Great straight or as an old fashion.
 
John
John,
Solid, a little young on the pallet but a good performer, can do better for similar money IMHO
 
guest
guest,
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.
 
guest
guest,
Smooth and mildly spicy. Elegant blend. I love it. This goes great with cigars, I'd say it's made for it.
 
guest
guest,
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
Todd,
I love the sweet pepper and smoky taste
 
CIL
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?)].
 
Logan
Logan,
Good for highballs
 
guest
guest,
Not as spicy as the spiral would lead you to believe. Definitely finishes with smoke and is overall solid.
 
guest
guest,
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.
 
guest
guest,
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.
 
Tom
Tom,
I enjoy it as a highball

Great whiskey. More smoke yet smooth. Still love my lagavulin 18
 
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.
