    “The first edition [of the 50 Year Old Yamazaki] came out in 2005,” notes Makiyo Masa, founder and director of Tokyo-based Dekanta, the world’s largest mail-order retail specialist of Japanese whiskies. “The second edition came out in 2007, with also only 50 bottles released, and the third edition came out in 2011 and 150 bottles of this whisky were released. The anticipation for these bottles, each upon their release, was huge. The result of recent auctions indicate that these bottles are only becoming more desirable over time.” Masa, who currently has a single bottle of 50 Year Old Yamazaki from the second edition, estimates that a complete set—comprising one bottle from each of the three editions—would be valued at more than one million dollars.
