Single Malt Yamazaki 2022 Editions are coming again

TTB filings revealed that Suntory is slated to release a series of Single Malt Yamazaki "Tsukuriwake" Selections in 2022, just like they did back in 2020.

This time around, Bourdeaux Wine Cask seems oddly absent.

Otherwise, we have the same 4 kinds of bottlings:

  • Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki Spanish Oak 2022 Edition
  • Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki Puncheon 2022 Edition
  • Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki Peated Malt 2022 Edition
  • Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki Mizunara 2022 Edition

They are all once again 48% abv, 700ml. While the TTB filings are intended for the US market, my guess is they will price mostly the same as the 2020 editions did here in Japan (that is, 11,000 yen for any of them except the Mizunara at 30,000 yen). Perhaps with a bit of an increase. And they will once again be on-trade only releases, meaning they will only be sold to bars/restaurants, and not directly to consumers.

Thanks to Kanpai Planet's twitter for the heads-up! I suspect we'll see several more limited edition release out of Suntory this year.

    Hi Richard,
    Is there any suggestion, or news that these will also be released in Australia? Being a reasonably close neighbour we seem to miss out on the releases.

    Thanks,

      Hi David,

      These labels came from the TTB in the US, so these will indeed be released internationally. I don’t know anything specific about Australia but I imagine Suntory would do at least a few bottles.
