After a few cocktails at this 'speakeasy' this little gem is what the doctor ordered.
Smooth, a touch of peat, long and delicate.

Delicious Islay-style whiskey. Light color, but very powerful. Medicinal and peaty with a ripe pear core.

Add a little Cocchi vermouth and you have one heck of a Rob Roy.

Very peaty and spicy blended whiskey. Definitely Scottish in style but with very precise Japanese characteristics.

Nice and fresh, with hints of pepper and pear and a long lingering finish. Great for the price.
