Taste the world's 5 most celebrated whisk(e)y regions

Experience the unique personalities of five whisky-producing regions with Suntory World Whisky Ao - a multi-layered blend of Yamazaki's misty delicacy, Hakushu's herbal freshness, Cooley's double-distilled complexity, Alberta's smooth rye depths, Beam's Bourbon, Ardmore's Highland smokiness, and Glen Garioch's sharp honey-spice. 

Suntory World Whisky Ao achieves harmony at its base while layering and highlighting a multitude of characteristics. The result offers aromas and flavors that change and evolve, depending on when and how you drink it. 

Suntory World Whisky Ao is a blend of whiskies produced from these regional distilleries

From Japan

Yamazaki Distillery: Japan’s first and oldest whisky distillery, featuring a delicate yet profound profile nurtured through Yamazaki’s misty climate.

Hakushu Distillery: Japan’s unique mountain forest distillery, featuring a refreshingly herbal flavour profile from the water of its natural surroundings

From Ireland

Cooley Distillery: One of the country's newer distillery founded in 1989, Cooley uses similar production methods to Scotch such as double distillation.

From the United States

Jim Beam Clermont Distillery: Founded in 1795 and run by the Beam family for generations, this distillery produces the World’s #1 Bourbon, using water naturally filtered through a limestone shelf and the same yeast since the Prohibition era.

From Canada

Alberta Distillery: Founded in 1946, Alberta’s high-quality, locally-grown rye and refreshing glacial water offer a smooth flavor.

From Scotland

Ardmore Distillery: Founded in 1898, Ardmore produces smoky Highland whisky that is crisp and different from other Islay varieties.

Glen Garioch Distillery: Among the Highlands’ oldest distilleries, Glen Garioch features Highland malt with sharp honey and heathery spicy notes.

Suntory World Whisky Ao Tasting Notes:

    A valiant effort.

    The idea of marrying multiple world styles is pretty interesting, and I hope it isn't abandoned. That said, Ao doesn't really come together. Certainly not bad, leans European, has a smoothness. But the profiles don't so much compete as try too hard to stay out of each other's way. Like four cars at a 4-way stop sign, nobody wants to go first. Glad to say I tried it, look forward to the first revision.
