product Details

Suntory Yamazaki Finest Old Liqueur Whisky 1960s

A fantastic bottling of Suntory whisky, long discontinued, in a unique dumpy bottle.

Although these bottles were normally stated as blends, this one is stated as from Yamazaki, though Yamazaki was producing grain whisky in this era so it could be a single blend.

The terminology "Liqueur" was used until the 1960s to specify a whisky of higher quality than normal.

This particularly unusual bottle still bears the name Kotobukiya Ltd, which was dropped in 1963 in place of now world renowned Suntory Ltd.
