This year marks The Rolling Stonesâ€™ 50th anniversary and there are many ways the occasion is being celebrated â€“ documentaries, exhibitions and of course, the band will play some shows, and now, a limited-edition whisky is also coming out.
Japanese distiller Suntory Liquors is releasing 150 bottles of a malt created from the year the Stones formed. Its taste is described in a press release as slightly bitter with a velvety smooth mouth-feel and an aftertaste of â€œpleasant woodiness.â€Â The whisky is part of Suntoryâ€™s Stones Bar series, which features other Stones-themed drinks. The crystal bottle it comes in is designed around the bandâ€™s iconic lips and tongue logo. Learn more at Suntory.com.
