Toki is a blended whisky from Suntory's three distilleries: Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita. This is a round and sweet blend with a refreshing citrus character and a spicy finish.
'Toki' means 'time' in Japanese. Toki has a different composition to its sister blend, Suntory Hibiki, and its main components are Hakushu single malt and Chita grain whisky.Tasting Notes (1)
Shinjirō Torii was a man of ambition. When he broke ground on Yamazaki distillery in 1923, he imagined a Japanese whisky culture to rival the best in the world. He had been inspired by the imported whiskies he sold at his shop in Osaka, complex blends comprising malt and grain from across Scotland. Though Torii laid the foundations for the Japanese whisky industry, it was his son Keizo who would realise his vision. Under Keizo’s leadership, Suntory opened two more distilleries – Chita near the city of Nagoya and Hakushu in the Japanese Alps. With three sites producing various styles of spirit, Suntory had everything it needed to make the blends that would bring Japanese whisky to the world stage.
Toki is made with whiskies from across Suntory’s three distilleries. Grain from Chita brings base notes of vanilla and cocoa, single malt from Hakushu supplies fresh aromas of citrus and mint and small quantities of well-aged stock from Yamazaki add spice and depth. Each element is chosen in pursuit of balance and harmony.
Japan’s love for the whisky highball knows no bounds. The simple serve of whisky and soda water is served in high-end restaurants and sold in cans from vending machines. It’s refreshing, excellent with food and easy to make at home.
Pour 50ml of Suntory Toki into a tall glass with lots of ice, stir lightly to chill and top with cold soda water – 150ml is ideal. Garnish with a twist of citrus peel and serve immediately.

My first Japanese, there are better whiskies at this price . but not bad at all, happy drinkable drink at the end of the day.
First time trying Japanese whisky, really impressed. great value for money, lovely and smooth, great with just ice, will definitely buy again!!
My first Japanese Whiskey. It’s certainly different from Scotch. Not hugely flavoursome. Mildly astringent and sharp tasting, but not harsh or unpleasant. 43% ABV with a curiously thin texture, leaving no legs on the inside of the glass. By no means unlikeable, but possibly too subtle for my unsophisticated taste. At £30 a go I am unlikely to buy another bottle.
Toki is a brilliant entry level whisky. I found it always came second to Yamazaki when I had both in play, however for a highball, it is simply excellent. Be warned - it is a gateway drug for a desire to try much more expensive Japanese drams!
I just got a bottle of Suntory whisky from our daughter and her husband for our 48th anniversary. Its great with a little ice very smooth!!!!
