Sumary of Meet The World’s Oldest Japanese Whisky: Yamazaki 55:

  • Beam Suntory Fortunately enough, I had the pleasure of tasting Yamazaki 55, which is a blend of three exceptional single malts from the 1960s: Shinjiro Torii—Yamasaki’s founder—distilled the first stream in the dawn of the ’60s and partially aged it in mizunara oak, a deciduous oak strain that’s endemic to Northeast Asia.
  • The second and third streams, by comparison, were distilled in 1961 and 1964 under the supervision of Suntory’s second master blender Keizo Saji—both of which were aged in American white oak.
  • These three expressions were then picked and blended by chief blender Shinji Fukuyo in collaboration with Shinjiro Torri’s grandson—the third-generation master blender Shingo Torii.
