From the silent Japanese whisky distillery, Karuizawa, the Karuizawa 41 Year Old 1970 Cask 1985 whisky is a vintage dram that is from a single cask. Karuizawa, known for legendary whisky collections and its single-cask spirits, closed down its whisky production in 2011, but Karuizawa drams continue surfacing. Here at dekanta, we have an extensive Karuizawa whisky collection, and this mature Japanese single-cask whisky was distilled in 1970 in a bourbon barrel and bottled in 2011, giving it a rich, sweet flavor profile unique to Karuizawa. This bottle is one of 181 total bottles released.
Once located at the foot of Mount Asama, Karuizawa Distillery was owned by Mercian Corporation, a company established by Kirin. All Karuizawa whiskies are valuable treasures in the Japanese whisky world, so try this dram for yourself to see how rare and special it is!
