A blend of Japanese single malt whisky and a secret Scottish malt, this whisky is nutty, chocolatey, jammy, and incredibly smooth. Aged in Pinot Noir, and Cabernet casks, get yellow cake on the nose with some spice and brown sugar on the palate. This sultry bottle is our top pick for Bossa Nova night in silk smoking jackets.
