The oldest single malt ever released by the house of Suntory, bottled in 2020. Yamazaki 55 Year Old is a blend of two different single malts - one distilled in 1960 and aged in Mizunara casks and one distillerd in 1964 and aged in White Oak.

Yamazaki`s chief blender Shinji Fukuyo described the 55 year old in the following terms - "Very old Scotch Whiskies gave me this impression of them being perfect Greek sculptures with beautifully 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. ’’
