Karuizawa 1981 Cask #103 70cl 58.1%
An bottling of Karuizawa from 2007 - when the distillery hadn't come to enjoy the reputation it does today.
This cask #103 was selected by Marcin Miller of the Number One Drinks Company, and won a gold medal as well as being the overall winner of the Japanese category at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2007.
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, then the spirit was distilled in small batches and aged 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.
