Suntory’s Oldest Yamazaki Whisky Ever Is Limited To 100 $30K Bottles

Suntory boasts one of the most prolific reputations in the whisky industry, and every so often, the company strikes liquid gold with a limited-edition release. For 2020, the Osaka-based brand is already leaving its mark on the world of high-end spirits, thanks, in large part, to the announcement of an ultra-limited Yamazaki 55-Year Whisky.

Arriving in a beautifully-adorned glass container, this collectible liquor boasts an unblended, single malt stature, and calls upon an exclusive seasonal taste that’s inherently wood-like. A fruity aroma precedes the Yamazaki 55’s subtle palette, giving the matured spirit a substantial flavor that sets it apart from other, less-refined offerings. As the oldest Yamazaki whisky to be listed for sale by the brand, you’d be correct to assume that getting your hands on one might be a bit complex. First, you’ll have to enter a drawing to test your luck, but only Japanese residents will be admitted. However, if you do come out on top, you’ll have to shell out around 3.3 million Yen (or $27,600+ USD) to claim one of the limited-to-100 Yamazaki 55 as your own. Head to Suntory’s website to learn more.

Purchase: $27,600+
