New Suntory’s release : Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015 !

Like last year with Yamazaki Limited Edition 2014, once again Suntory revealed a limited edition of its famous single malt !

The Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015 will be available in Japan from 26 May. As the name suggests, it is a limited edition that may disappear quite quickly because nowadays Japanese whiskies meet a huge success over the archipelago and the world.

This new nectar created by Suntory Chief Master Blender is an blend of several single malts distilled and aged in Yamazaki, the very first malt distillery of Japan.

On the menu of this whisky bottled at 43%, some single malts aged for over 20 years in Sherry Casks, and some "Young Talents" which are relatively young but already revealing an intense character single malts aged in Bourbon Barrels.

For this new 2015 version, a collector's bottle was created with the stills of the distillery painted in the background, plus a nice case proudly displaying the golden sign of Yamazaki wrote in Japanese.

Despite a recommended price of 10,000 Yen, this new Yamazaki Limited Edition 2015 will be quickly sold out in liquor stores, and thereafter will only be available on auction sites...

  1. Dear Web master, can I post a question to ask how many of this 2015 were produce for the 2015. Thanks

  2. I am Whisky

    I was lucky enough to be visiting the Yamazaki distillery on May 28th morning and was even luckier to have bought 2 bottles of this limited edition. There were only 6 bottles available. They were gone in 5 seconds. Many visitors were disappointed.

  3. I was in a Japanese market today in San Mateo, CA and found Nikka Gold & Gold and Super Nikka for $32USD. Both impretod by JFC International. Besides this sighting, I haven’t seen anything besides Yamakazi. I have to check out a few whisky bars here in SF but really, I’m not excited about paying 3x markup for bottle service. I was still excited to find cheap Nikka, but it doesn’t compare to a few weeks ago when I was drinking Yoichi 15 in Tokyo. That was wonderful…Thanks for your blog, I really enjoy reading it.


    I was in Japan recently, on the southern island of Kyushu. Couldn’t find this anywhere, while I was searching for a week. But one day I was in a small town in the boonies and noticed a local liquor shop, so out of curiosity, I went in. I found their only bottle of Yamazaki limited 2015. Seems it was too pricey for the locals at 10,000 yen, so I took it off their hands. 🙂

    A couple of days later I was at Daimaru Dept store in the big city, when I saw them putting out 6 more of these lovelies on the shelves. I grabbed 3 of them, as another guy grabbed the other 3. So I came home with 4 in all.

  5. I have been lucky to taste it as well and I have just been offered 30 bottles.
    If anyone interested, dont hesitate to contact us at Wine Source.
