Morimoto Asia is celebrating World Whiskey Day( and week ) with the Forbidden Reserve Release Event.

An incredible portfolio of 20 bottles of unique whiskey varieties will be opened and available for guests to purchase ½ oz samples of, served neat or on the rocks. These highly sought after bottles will include pours of selections such as Stagg, Elmer Lee, Old Van Winkle, and Booker’s 30th.
