Insider knowledge: Yamazaki 60 Months Old (Rare Bottling) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Japan. If distilled in America the spelling would be Yamazaki 60 Months Old (Rare Bottling) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
I am rather sorry to say that this is a blended whisky, not a single malt.
All the Suntory Royal releases, up to the current 15yo are blends.
This is an old bottle though.
