The distinguished Yamazaki 55 Years Old, is a masterpiece from the House of Suntory that embodies the essence of time. This inaugural release is a testament to the vision of Master Blender Keizo Saji, who brought his father's dream to fruition. The Yamazaki 55 is not just a whisky; it's an embodiment of a uniquely Japanese experience and lifestyle, deeply intertwined with the cultural heritage of Suntory Whisky.

Crafted with exceptional care, the Yamazaki 55 is a harmonious blend of single malts of remarkable pedigree. It includes malts distilled in 1960, under the watchful eye of Suntory's founder, Shinjiro Torii, and matured in the revered Mizunara oak casks. Complementing this is the malt from 1964, overseen by Suntory's Second Master Blender, Keizo Saji, and aged in White Oak casks. This extraordinary blend was brought to life through the collaborative genius of Suntory's Fifth-Generation Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo and Third-Generation Master Blender Shingo Torii. Their expert blending unveils an unparalleled depth, complexity, and wisdom in the Yamazaki 55.

Upon experiencing this exquisite whisky, one is greeted with a deep amber hue, an inviting aroma reminiscent of sandalwood and ripened fruit. The palate is an intricate balance of sweet and slightly bitter notes, intertwined with a profound woodiness. This leads to a finish that is both subtly bitter and sweet, yet richly satisfying. The Yamazaki 55 is more than a whisky; it's a celebration of legacy, craftsmanship, and the art of Japanese whisky-making.

Yamazaki 55 year old

The Yamazaki 55 Year Old is an exquisite single malt, crafted from a meticulous blend of two historic whiskies. The first component is a 1960-vintage spirit, distilled under the guidance of Shinjiro Torii, the founding father of the distillery. This exceptional spirit was aged in a Mizunara oak cask, known for imparting complex and refined flavors. The second element is a whisky filled in 1964 into white oak casks, a significant year marking the succession of Keizo Saji, Torii's son and the second-generation master blender. This was also the year when their company, initially named Kotobukiya, transitioned to the now globally recognized name, Suntory. This blend represents not just the fusion of unique whiskies but also the legacy and evolution of Suntory's whisky-making craft..
