This Should Be Interesting

In a move that I never saw coming, Japanese whisky company Suntory purchased Beam Global for 13.6 billion dollars this morning. Not only does that give them three Kentucky distilleries (Boston, Clermont, Maker's Mark), but also Laphroaig and the Irish distillery Cooley. I'm a big fan of the Suntory whiskies and, of course, Bowmore as well, so I'm quite curious to see where this goes.
