Our Take

As mentioned earlier, “Blended M” will be sold regularly throughout the year as a standard item.

It is very reasonably priced and the number of units sold is expected to increase in the future. The malt flavor is stronger than I expected, and it is a bottle with a high degree of perfection. As the demand for home drinking increases due to the Corona disaster, I think this bottle will become a very must-have item.

It can be drunk straight, on the rocks, iced up, with water, or with soda. This is a whiskey that you should always have a bottle of at home.
