Whisky Reviews for Suntory Toki
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.26 points
- ordinary drink. honey, grassy. Feels like hakushu and Chita. Opens up with soda and ice. Bought at Costco for $30. Good value.
- Aroma, alcoholic closed, vanilla. I didn’t understand anything else.
The taste is soft moderately alcoholic.
The aftertaste, short, for some reason resembled a fish in batter.
Conclusion, ordinary drinking whiskey for every day. Simple but high-quality like all Japanese.

- In its straight up form, there’s nothing wrong with Toki, but it’s very simplistic, and fairly unexciting. However, mixed into a highball it makes for a very refreshing long drink. Still not complex, still not deep and bold, but tasty nonetheless. There within lies the problem. Suntory has produced Toki to be drunk long. Suntory has positioned and promoted Toki to be drunk long. But, unless you’re in the US (where you can find it for around £25) it is bloody expensive to actually do so.
Fresh, light and inoffensive. Foam bananas and peaches provide a fruity opener which develops and heightens in the glass over time. There’s a fair vanilla influence here and some subtle but perceivable florals – pine and cut grass. Everything is wrapped up in sweet grains and with a generally creamy aroma. Simple stuff, but entirely pleasant.
Obviously young and grain-forward. There’s still some rawness, copper and glue flavour in here. The mouthfeel is reasonable, but not hugely coating. Starting fairly sweet, this offers up more apple orchards than the nose which is more stone-fruit/tropical. Light citrus peels provide a touch of zing and are joined by vanilla and oak – the wood giving some pepperiness and ginger.
Short to medium in length with some residual sweetness. Apple flavour lingers along with slight astringency and gentle pepper.
- This blend feels like 10% Yamazaki 10% Hakushu and 80% Chita. Very light. For me, it's ideal for a highball.
