The newest bottle in the vaunted lineup of premium Japanese whiskies is more than 55 years old.

The nation's oldest distillery will release Yamazaki 55 this summer, with a supply so limited that owner Suntory Holdings Ltd. will release only 100 bottles — priced at a mere ¥3 million ($27,600) each.

That could be good value, considering that in 2018 a bottle of 50-year-old Yamazaki sold at auction for more than $300,000.
