Amidst the bottles of dreadful vanilla-flavored rum, raspberry vodka, and cheap gin in my parents’ liquor cabinet I found the following bottle of Suntory Whisky, in a bottle with a cool unusual shape.
Now, other than being able to make a few tasty cocktails with whisky, I’m woefully ignorant about it, especially Japanese whisky. In fact, what I know about Japanese whiskies I could probably write on a Post-It note with a Jumbo Crayola.
And this is what I know about Suntory. They make both my very favorite bottle in my collection, their Hermes creme de violette … and possibly one of the worst liqueurs ever concocted …
Can any whisky lovers help me out with the 411?
