Suntory's Blend of Japanese, Canadian, American, Irish and Scotch whiskies. Not going to be sold outside Japan, supposedly, due to complicated tariffs/duties. A little peaty and smoky, but just singular and really interesting. So many layers and it keeps changing in the glass. Really fun. Not as sweet as some Japanese whiskies I've had but not overly smokey or peaty either. I really like this. — a month ago
