 “Ao is an exceptional whisky which, through the art of Suntory blending, allows you to enjoy the unique characteristics of each of the five major whisky-making regions,” says fifth-generation Suntory Chief Blender, Shinji Fukuyo.

We got an advance taste — darker honey/amber in appearance with a lot of malt and tropical fruit on the nose, the whisky features a rich mouthfeel with biscuit, cherry, citrus and butterscotch candy on the palate, with just the right amount of smoke and wood spice. It’s a nice balance of all five styles.

Our goal here is simple:  to help you live a more adventurous,  eventful and engaging life.
