Description

An incredibly intense 1981 vintage Karuizawa, aged in a sherry cask for over 30 years. This is another excellent example from this legendary distillery.

Karuizawa was founded in 1955 and was Japan’s smallest whisky distillery. In 1959, they became the first distillery to export whisky overseas.
Karuizawa used the famous Golden Promise barley, which was peated, and the spirit was distilled in small batches before aging in the finest Spanish sherry casks to make some of the best whisky in the world.

Sadly, Karuizawa distillery stopped production in 2000 and closed for good in 2011.
