Shinjiro Torii, Suntory’s founder and first Master Blender, invented Kakubin in 1937. It was affectionately known as Kakubin, or “square bottle,” even though it was originally labelled “Suntory Whisky.”
Suntory’s devotion to unchanging quality has been symbolised by its name and square-cut tortoise-shell style for more than 80 years.
Kakubin is a very adaptable whiskey with a sweet scent, rich flavour, and dry finish, and the Kakubin highball is the drink of choice for many Japanese when they go out for a night of food and drink.
Please allow adequate time for the Kakubin to open up in the glass due to the presence of alcohol. The Kakubin has a unique aroma that quickly identifies it as a Japanese whiskey.
Floral and fruity tones, young grain alcohol, brown sugar, caramel, plums, sweet candies, young bourbon, nuts, cinnamon, vanilla, light honey, light coconut water, and a hint of citrus are among the notes are detected. It’s nothing exceptional, but it’s a step up than your regular low-cost Scottish Blend.
Grain Alcohol, Oak, Cereals, light Vanilla, light Honey, Grapefruit, light Pepper, and light Ginger all contribute to a watery, sugary sweet, edgy, and somewhat bitter taste.
Light Honey, Grapefruit, Nuts, Nut Shells, Grains, mild Vanilla, Oak, light Pepper, and Ginger on a short, sugary sweet and watery finish.
