Karuizawa Whisky - a truly cult distillery

Karuizawa is a legendary whisky distillery in Japan. Karuizawa distillery was founded in 1955 in the foothills of Mount Asama,  an active volcano north-west of Tokyo, to make a single malt whisky in as traditional a manner as possible.

 At 850 meters above sea level, the distillery is the highest in Japan; low temperatures and high humidity provided an ideal micro-climate for whisky production.  The Karuizawa Distillery stopped production in 2000 and completely closed in 2011.

Karuizawa malt is so rare an popular, you can't find it in stores or in shops. The quality of Karuizawa malt is very high, unique and not reproducible. Due the high demand, the value increases steadily. We are pleased to offer you any bottles of these stunning collector's items.

 

Karuizawa 1967 for Whisky Exchange

58.4% / #6426 / bottled for 10th Anniversary TWE

A very collectable 'sherry monster' from the cult Japanese distillery Karuizawa. Very old sherried Karuizawa has developed a cult following due to their extreme intensity of flavour. This whisky was bottled from a sherry cask at full strength 58.4% (an astonishing strength for a 42 years old whisky) and scored an enormous 95 points on tasting blogs whiskyfun ("a Japanese masterpiece") and the same score from WhiskyNotes, who called it 'My favourite release of the year 2009'. This bottle was also named 'Japanese Whisky of the Year' by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.

The cask was split between two retailers, La Maison du Whisky in France and The Whisky Exchange in the UK. This is the TWE version, which has an extra logo on the label to celebrate the company's 10th anniversary.
Only around 200 bottles of this were ever released and all sold out very quickly.
A very hard to find bottling from perhaps the greatest Japanese distillery. This is an absolutely incredible whisky!
