KARUIZAWA Vintage Limited Edition


Self pick-up from our Shop in Robertson Quay only.

The Karuizawa distillery was built in 1955 in the city of the same name, in Nagano prefecture, in the heart of the Japanese Alps. If in general Japanese whiskey enjoys a very good reputation, Karuizawa is especially sought after and appreciated by connoisseurs. Awarded many times in international competitions, it is a whiskey that owes much of its character to the variety of barley used: “Golden Promise” and to aging in sherry casks. Since its production ceased in 2000, versions have become increasingly rare and increasingly popular.

Karuizawa has become a more than legendary single malt. This absolutely remarkable 1981 vintage is on par with the 1977, 1967 and another 1981 bottled for La Maison du Whiskey a few years ago.
