Karuizawa 1997 Cask #3312 13 Years Old 70cl / 60.2%
22 April 2015
Only four casks of Karuizawa have been bottled from the 1997 vintage.
Editor-in-chief Dave Broom and a team from Whisky Magazine Japan took part in the 2010 Trailwalker Japan event to raise money to support Oxfam's charitable causes around the world. This was released in support of their efforts.
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.
Good label with minor wrinkling.
