Please help: 20-Year Yamazaki Single Malt
Hi, I've just registered so ....Nice to meet you.
I'm hoping the whisky.com community can help identify a bottle I managed to get my hands on. It's a really long and slightly interesting story. If you want to hear it I am happy to oblige. In the meantime, let me get to the heart of the matter.
I have in my possession the following:
Yamazaki Distillery 20 year single malt.
Casked in 1984.
Bottled in 2004.
Basically, I want to know if this is something I should just open up and drink because I could always get another bottle somewhere or is it rare?
I know the bottle cost 30,000 Yen when the US dollar was 30% stronger than the Yen. So, in US currency, the cost was $210. Now that the Yen rate is 25% stronger than the dollar ....ths same bottle would cost $375.
Your help is greatly appreciated. Any information you can provide is helpful.
