Suntory Holdings Ltd. has unveiled a 50 year old single malt cask in Yamazaki where the company first started its distillery in 1924. Dubbed the “Yamazaki 50-Year-Old”; this reddish single malt is the most expensive whiskey from Japan so naturally it had to be subject to a limited edition launch.
“Yamazaki 50-Year-Old” is one of the rarest whiskies in the world as it is maintained in unique barrels of oak species and has the character of fragrant wood (Chara). The single malt is amber reddish in colour and has a long lasting fruity flavour.
It is filled with aroma of aloeswood and ends with slight smoky finish. With only 150 bottles made available at a price of $12,892, it’s time to make a whiskey connoisseur very happy this Christmas.
