The Sun is unique in that it is a blend of 50% malts distilled and aged in Japan, and 50% grain whiskies aged between 12 and 16 years imported from Scotland. This harmonious marriage between the two types of whisky creates an intense and balanced taste experience.
This whisky is neither colored nor cold filtered, thus preserving its authentic and natural character. It reveals itself with elegance at each tasting, revealing distinct notes at each stage. The nose is complex, offering aromas of oak and a subtle touch of smoked peat. On the palate, it is rich and captivating with flavors of barbecue sauce, dark chocolate and orange marmalade blending harmoniously. The finish is persistent, leaving a delicate spicy and smoky imprint that lingers on the palate.
Used in large quantities in this blend, the peated malt whisky distilled in 2018 at Saburomaru is aged primarily in sherry casks and mizunara oak barrels from Toga, Toyama Prefecture, giving it peaty flavors and a spicy character from the mizunara wood.
The imported grain whiskies were first aged in Scotland and then further matured in Japan in Nagano red wine casks and roasted casks made in Inami, adding a smooth texture and contributing to the overall harmony of the blend.
The Sun 2022 offers an unforgettable tasting experience, with its aromatic complexity, rich mouthfeel and lingering finish. A perfect choice for fans of Japanese blended whiskies with strong character such as Suntory Hibiki or Nikka From The Barrel.
