Karuizawa 1984 Single Cask #2563

The Karuizawa Distillery was established in 1955 in the foothills of Mount Asama – an active volcano. The area is a popular mountain resort and the distillery is the highest in Japan at 850m above sea level. Traditional, small-scale, high-quality production is the aim, with wooden wash backs, small stills, and sherry casks from Spain, all contributing to the process. The environment is also ideal for whisky production, with low temperatures and high humidity. Karuizawa is the gold standard of rare Japanese whisky. The distillery closed its doors in 2011, although it had not been producing whisky for over a decade.
This particular whisky from Karuizawa was distilled last 1984 and was matured in cask #2563 for about 25 years before being bottled in 2009. It is presented in an original box. If you’d like to know the taste of a rare whisky from the legendary distillery.
