Karuizawa Spirit Of Asama 55% 70cl / 55%
02 June 2015
A exclusive bottling of whisky from Karuizawa for Speciality Drinks, part of a vatting of 77 casks, bottled at 55% in 2012.
This single malt has been crafted from hand-selected European oak sherry casks of whisky distilled in 1999 and 2000, the final vintages of Karuizawa.
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.
