Instructions:

  1. Pre-Chill Your Glass: The key to a perfect highball lies in a chilled glass. Fill a highball glass with ice and water for a few minutes. Discard the ice water before starting.
  2. Measure with Respect: Due to the limited-edition nature of this whisky, precise measurement is important. Use a jigger to accurately measure 2 ounces of Yamazaki 18 Year.
  3. The Gentle Pour: Pour the Yamazaki 18 Year over the ice cubes in your pre-chilled glass. Let it sit for a moment to allow the whisky to chill slightly.
  4. The Art of the Top Up: Slowly top the drink with chilled, high-quality soda water. The key is to add just enough soda water to create a gentle fizz without diluting the whisky's flavor profile.
