Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (500ml)
ONLY AVAILABLE TO DELIVER IN HONG KONG
Harking back to the beginning of the series, Bn5 returns to Bn1’s atypically smoky character. Big, rich and ashy, it takes no prisoners on the first sip. However, a drop of water tames the beast and shows more of the distillery’s traditionally fruity character.
