Karuizawa 2000 Cask Strength 24th Release
£1,495.00 inc. VAT where applicable
The mountain town of Karuizawa is situated on a high plain at the base of active volcano, Mount Asama, in the heart of Japan’s mainland. In 1956, the wine and spirits giant, Daikoku Budoshu, expanded their already established empire there by building a distillery with the onus of producing a single malt to be utilised in the company’s blends. They christened it ‘Ocean’. 1958 saw a freer importation channel opening up for malt, and barley flowed into Japan from the UK. Karuizawa Factory, as it was then known, worked with Golden Promise barley (also famously used by Macallan), and matured their signature spirit in sherry casks, yet very little actually left the country, which in future would lend hugely to its collectability.
Mothballed in 2000 this is a very rare, sherry, single cask release from Karuizawa from 2017. Release No.24 of the Fugaku Sanjurokkei (Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji) series. Each label depicts a different image of the revered Japanese mountain.
Karuizawa produced outstanding whiskies, many of which have received international acclaim. They have released almost 300 single casks which are becoming increasingly rarer and rarer as demand soars.
This limited bottling consists of multi-vintage Cask Strength Karuizawa from the distillery’s final years of production.
