The second in a series for Asia by a Japanese comic illustrator is a woman drinking whiskey while gazing at the night view of Marina Bay Sands. Continuing from the Hong Kong edition released this summer, the main character is Shizuka SAKURAO, who travels around Asia (and so on).
Now, the master blender has chosen a non-peated bourbon cask that has been laid down for two years in a tunnel in Togawachi and one year in the Sakurao aging house by the sea. It is a good product with a light golden color and a typical malty sweetness that is easy to drink.
It is a good piece that can be enjoyed as a collector's item.
