The Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015 will be available in Japan from 26 May. As the name suggests, it is a limited edition that may disappear quite quickly because nowadays Japanese whiskies meet a huge success over the archipelago and the world.
This new nectar created by Suntory Chief Master Blender is an blend of several single malts distilled and aged in Yamazaki, the very first malt distillery of Japan.
On the menu of this whisky bottled at 43%, some single malts aged for over 20 years in Sherry Casks, and some "Young Talents" which are relatively young but already revealing an intense character single malts aged in Bourbon Barrels.
For this new 2015 version, a collector's bottle was created with the stills of the distillery painted in the background, plus a nice case proudly displaying the golden sign of Yamazaki wrote in Japanese.
Despite a recommended price of 10,000 Yen, this new Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015 will be quickly sold out in liquor stores, and thereafter will only be available on auction sites...
