Suntory has introduced two new variants to its Yamazaki and Hakushu single malt brands. Both are blends of previous years’ whiskies from the two distilleries. Neither carry a reference to any production year, unlike previous releases.

The new Yamazaki uses malt aged in oak casks, while the lightly peated Hakushu has a “fresh, smoky nuance”. 

“We hope the new whiskies will cater to the growing fans of highball,” said a Suntory spokesman, referring to the popular Japanese drink of whisky sodas pre-packaged for quick consumption.
