A historic Japanese whisky, that has been in production since 1937.
Kakubin translates from Japanese as “square bottle”, referring to the distinctive design of this whisky. This is a classic blend of Suntory’s distilleries Yamazaki and Hakushu, aged in Bourbon casks.
This whisky is a testament to the harmony that is at the very heart of everything Suntory do. A light and refreshing blend, with sweet notes of warm cereal, caramel, toffee and bananas. This dram is perfectly balanced. A spirit ideal for mixing with soda and the core of many a Japanese cocktail.
Nose: Big scoops of fresh cereals and honeycomb ice cream. Light spiciness to it.
Palate: More honey, now with the addition of citrus peels, peppercorn and cinnamon.
Finish: More honey’d barley.
Luminous orangey hue with delicate, intense golden tints. Extremely fine in the first nose of dried fruits, the aromas are harmoniously complex __ between floral and fruity – developing towards candied fruit with an underlying oakiness, spiced with ginger and nutmeg hints. Well balanced and constantly offering new discoveries with flavors of cedar wood, vanilla and caramelized orange, leading into a very rounded finish.
Lustrous, antique gold with intense hints of amber. An open, complex bouquet combining nutmeg aromas with a dash of orange zest and sweet spice, backed with subtle hints of undergrowth. Concentrated, poised and well-rounded on the palate, with a velvety-smooth finish.
