KARUIZAWA 50 year-old 1965 Bourbon Cask Monyou 62.6%


1 bottle available.

Bottle & Gift box are in ultimate perfection.

A very nuanced fruitiness that allies classicism and exoticism, floral notes that never cease to gain in depth and complexity, rare spices that provide bags of heat and vitality, and above all a perfectly integrated woodiness that shines through its subtlety. These are just some of the main elements that give the palette of aromas and flavours of this Karuizawa great freshness and a youthful expression. Add to this a crazy charm that evokes single malts of the past without falling into nostalgia.

Profile: a combination of sunshine and shadow, the nose evokes a field of ripe barley before taking on a more exotic character with a hint of chilli pepper. Notes of rancio sherry (cherries in brandy). Very balanced, the palate reveals notes of blood oranges and purple lilacs, and becomes even more exotic (mango, pineapple).

The KARUIZAWA 1965 – Monyou Experience – Bourbon Cask box set includes:
– Engraved bottle with porcelain podium.
– One Japanese ink kit (Ink flask, brush, cup and unique numbered stamp).
– Booklet recounting the Karuizawa experience lived by La Maison du Whisky.

The Karuizawa distillery was built in 1955 in the town of the same name, in the prefecture of Nagano surrounded by the Japanese Alps. Japanese whisky generally has a very good reputation, but Karuizawa is especially sought after and appreciated by connoisseurs; it has accumulated an impressive number of medals in competitions. Just like Macallan, it is a whisky that owes much of its character to the type of barley that is used: (Golden Promise) and to ageing in sherry casks. Production stopped in 2000 and bottles are becoming increasingly rare.
