Between 2014 and 2017, the Yamazaki Limited Edition bottlings were some of the most sought after annual Japanese whisky releases on the market. Limited in numbers and containing some precious, aged Yamazaki liquid inside, they delivered in quality, appearance and collectibility.
It was only once the realities of the perilous whisky shortage took hold that these wonderful expressions were lay by the wayside, making way for a number of less-premium, NAS whiskies such as the Essence of Suntory Volumes 3 and 4 and the recent Yamazaki Cask Finish releases.
Then, last year, Suntory revitalized the series with the release of the Yamazaki Limited Edition 2021, bringing back the good times, at long last.
Now, they’re set to keep the ball rolling with the release of the Yamazaki Limited Edition 2022.
This one will focus heavily on the use of top quality Mizunara wood for maturing, resulting in a creamy, aromatic expression that delivers a lively, fruity tasting experience backed up by a unique and elegant array of spices. It’s smooth, flavour-packed and incredibly moreish – what more could you want?
With the first release limited to just 1,000 bottles, stock isn’t expected to last long, so act now to get your hands on a bottle while you can.
