Japanese omakase restaurant Nakaji, in New York City, will open one of only 100 bottles in existence of Yamazaki 55 at a one-night-only dinner on 8 December, with tickets costing $5,555. Yamazaki 55 is a blend of single malts featuring components distilled in 1960 under the supervision of Suntory’s founder Shinjiro Torii, and then aged in Mizunara oak casks, and in 1964 under Suntory’s second master blender Keizo Saji. The blend was then aged in white-oak casks. Suntory’s fifth-generation chief blender Shinji Fukuyo worked with third-generation master blender Shingo Torii to create this Yamazaki 55 some 60 years in the making.
