Made from an unblended malt whisky that was matured at the Yamazaki Distillery in Shimamoto, Osaka, the whisky is described by Suntory's chief blender to have a "sweet and woody flavor with a fruity aroma and long aftertaste." Limited to 100 bottles, interested buyers will be required to have a Japanese address and you will have to enter a lottery to win an opportunity to purchase one.
