1975 Number One Drinks Company Karuizawa Sherry Butt 6736 35 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Japanese Whisky (700ml)

$14,999.00 Bottle
  • ABV 61.8%

A rarity from the famed mothballed Japanese distillery, Karuizawa which closed its doors in 2011. Distilled in 1975 and bottled by the Number One Drinks Company in 2010 in first fill Sherry Cask No. 6736 for 35 years.  Needless to say, these bottlings are of legendary status in the world of whisky, the likes of which are unlikely to ever be repeated

In overall excellent condition. Box is included with some bruising as should be expected on an item this old.

Other Reviews...Colour: amber. Nose: the very same family again but this seems to be rounder and smoother, with less gunpowder this time, less leather and less meat. Instead, we have more figs and dates, apricot jam, chocolate, kirsch… And yeah, more gunpowder coming through after a few seconds albeit not in such great amounts. With water: yes, it’s probably the Scotchest of them all. Dried fruits, figs, kumquats, jams, bergamots, orange cake, sandalwood, spearmint and just touches of parsley and old balsamic vinegar. Beautiful. Mouth (neat): exactly the same feeling as with the nose, this is a tad less powerful and much creamier and fruitier than the 1977s but don’t get me wrong, it’s still a powerful monster (a kaiju?) that needs water. With water: ah yes, this extra-fruitiness makes it a tad sexier than the 1977s and probably a little easier too. Marmalade, pepper, mango chutney and bags of cinnamon. Finish: extremely long, mostly on fresh green pepper, which comes as a surprise. But I must confess I love green pepper! Comments: fab. 92 Points Serge Valentin (whiskyfun.com)
