Suntory to Release Yamazaki Limited Edition 2014

Post by Stefan Van Eycken, Tokyo
On 20 May, Suntory will be releasing a limited edition of their Yamazaki single malt, simply called "Limited Edition 2014". Continuing a recent trend, this will be a NAS edition. It's a vatting of malt matured in European oak ex-sherry and ex-port casks for over two decades and younger malt (how young is anybody's guess) matured in American oak. Retail price will be around 8,000 yen (that's the good news) and 8% tax (after the 3% consumption tax hike has gone into effect ... which is from April). We look forward to trying this new edition and will keep you posted as always.
