Introducing Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki 55 Years Old.
The oldest single malt whisky in the history of the House of Suntory.

In its much anticipated first release of the Yamazaki 55, the House of  Suntory pays tribute to the passage of time. It was in Showa 38 (1963)  that Kotobukiya was renamed Suntory after Keizo Saji succeeded  his father, founder Shinjiro Torii as the House’s Second Generation  Master Blender. Keizo was charged to bring his father’s dream to life,  creating not only the quality liquid gold but a quintessentially Japanese  experience and lifestyle that rooted Suntory Whisky as the people’s choice.

"Very old Scotch Whiskies gave me this impression of them being perfect Greek sculptures with  beautiful toned beauty. Instantly impressive as a piece of art. But the Yamazaki 55 is more like  an old Buddhist statue. Calm and mysterious. It takes time to take in its inner beauty with the smell of Japanese incense and stripped old wood, like the Toshodaiji Temple in Nara."

- Shinji Fukuyo, Chief Blender

TASTING NOTES

  • Color:¬†Deep amber distinctive of Mizunara casks.
  • Nose:¬†A robust aroma redolent of sandal wood. ¬†A sweet, mature bouquet like well-ripened fruit.
  • Palate:¬†A soft, smooth first sip that blossoms in the mouth with flavor.¬† A mixture of sweet and slightly bitter, followed by a woody note from the Mizunara cask.
  • Finish:¬†Slightly bitter, a fragrance like scented wood and a hint of smokiness. A sweet, rich, lingering finish.
  • Alcohol content: 43%
  • Best¬†paired with¬†sashimi, and other fresh recipes
