In Japan and throughout the World, Suntory and Yamazaki are names synonymous with highest-quality Whisky. One of the reason for the legendary status is constantly releasing outstanding expressions that send Whisky lovers around the globe into a collecting frenzy.

Yamazaki 55 Year Old is Distillery's and World's oldest release, a product of three generations of distilling expertise, meticoluous blending, a true testament to the power of aging the Spirit in Mizunara oak casks, and a tribute to the passage of time. Blended by three generations of Master Blenders from three different casks (Mizunara and American oak) filled at different times in more than half the century since its inception in 1960, this Whisky is exceptionally crafted and balanced. Which is incredibily difficult to achieve at such age in order to retain the distinguishing notes while minimizing any overbearing flavors that can overpower the palate. What you get, is a plethora of notes that are unlike any other Whisky that has ever been produced.

The Yamazaki 55 Year Old is presented in an elegant calligraphy-engraved bottle showcasing the impeccable craftsmanship Japanese art and culture are famous for. The Japan release also includes an exclusive miniature bottle along with the full size bottle, making this particular expression among the most rare Yamazaki releases of all time.

A prized release that will undoubtedly stand apart among even the most prized collections.

It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
