2000 Karuizawa 18 Year Old Single Cask No.507 Cask Strength Single Malt Japanese Whisky (700ml)

JAPAN
$5999. 00 Bottle
$71988.00 Dozen
ABV: 62.9%
A highly prized and much sought-after sherry matured Karuizawa (these are the ones that typically get the big scores). Part of the "Flower and Bird" series, cask #507 was distilled in 2000 and matured for at least eighteen years before being bottled in 2018. Reports have it we're getting near the final stocks of Karuizawa. It's uncertain how many more batches are to come. Anything earlier is already fetching a considerable premium. This may well be the best opportunity you'll come across to enter an increasingly rarified market. 483 bottles. 62.9% Alc./Vol. One only to sell.

The Karuizawa distillery was opened in 1955 in Miyota, near Mt. Asama – an active volcano. Since ceasing production in 2000, it's increasingly rare whiskies have topped the auction charts for returns in the Japanese segment.
