Suntory Kakubin Whisky
Dozens of years had passed since Suntory began creating Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky in the outskirts of Kyoto, based on the dream of Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory, of crafting a Japanese whisky that rivals scotch. In 1937, Kakubin was created as a Japanese whisky tailored to the delicate Japanese palate.
Its position has remained unshakable in the 70 plus years of rapid change that have since passed. The square-cut, tortoise-shell bottle continues to bear witness to unwavering quality.

Talisker Skye Malt Scotch
An easy-drinking style, taking the distillery's classically rugged character and softening it out, while maintaining the smoky and sweet notes the distillery is known for. More approachable, but still definitely Talisker.Talisker Skye was introduced in early 2015, named after the beautiful island on which the distillery resides. This expression brings with it a more well-rounded and sweet flavour profile packed with fresh citrus, sweet smoke, peppery spice and traditional Talisker maritime notes. It's matured in a combination of refill and toasted American oak casks, with a slightly higher proportion of toasted casks. Perfect for those who perhaps find the classic Talisker flavour profile a bit too much, not to say that Talisker fans won't enjoy it too.
