Karuizawa 8 Year Old Japanese Malt Whisky (700ml)

JAPAN
$999.00 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

Japanese whiskies have been delivering remarkable returns compared with other segments, and the most sought after of all are the whiskies from the now silent Karuizawa distillery. As one of the top performers on the UK auction scene in recent years, this bottle represents a very rare opportunity to secure a piece of Japanese distilling history at a very reasonable price. Reportedly drawn from a bourbon cask and a sherry butt, this 8 year old was released around 2000. One only to sell. Some very minor markings to the outer carton but overall excellent condition. 40% Alc./Vol.

Karuizawa's preference for only using sherry casks (though not exclusively) helped build its reputation, and there have been a number of single cask bottlings in this sherry-led style. This matches their flavoursome spirit, made using only Golden Promise barley (as Macallan once did), all shipped from Simpson’s of Berwick. Since the mid-nineties Karuizawa was unpeated. It's ironic that the vision and persistence of its proprietors was commercially unsustainable during its operation. The cult distillery ceased production in 2000 and completely closed in 2011.
