This April, Suntory launches its latest whisky, a blend that sources whisky from the company's distilleries in Scotland, Ireland, America, Canada and Japan. These whiskies have come together to create their first ever blended whisky, which is called "Ao", a Japanese word for blue, describing the color of the ocean that connects the five major whisky-producing regions in the world. No word yet Ao's flavor profile, but hardcore aficionados can track down a bottle in Japan when it launches this April.
