The set features bottles that combine extraordinary single malt whisky with a design that captures the true essence of Japanese culture in a stunning way. It’s a striking set that is sure to be one of the most collectible and highly sought Japanese Whisky releases of the year.
Exquisite Single Malt Whisky
The spectacular Koinobori collection is brought to life with a bold Karuizawa single malt that has been carefully crafted from a range of vintages distilled at the turn of the century. Varying cask types and maturities were selected to capture the full gamut of notes that are unique to Karuizawa’s highly distinguished expressions. The flavor profile is one of the most complex Karuizawa expressions you’ll find, featuring notes of spice and dark chocolate on the palate joined by umami and succulent forest fruit. Prunes, dates, and plums intensify nearing the finish. It’s a delightful experience through and through.
The collection includes 3 cask strength bottles which each contain 70cl of Karuizawa Single Malt from the 1999-2000 vintage range originally released by Karuizawa.
Such a superb whisky was deserving of an equally beautiful appearance. You’ve never seen a collection like this before, this set is one of the most visually impressive designs in the world today. The Koinobori Series features 3 immaculately designed bottles adorned with a symbol of Japanese good fortune, the Koinobori carp. The Koinobori are a traditional element of Japanese culture representing the family. They can be seen throughout Japan on the outside of homes during some of the countries most popular festivals.
The black Koinobori are a symbol of the father, the red or pink a symbol of the mother and the smaller fishes in violet, blue or green symbolize the children. The Japanese hang the Koinbori on their houses in honor of their children in hopes of bringing them good fortune, health and strength.
Karuizawa: The Whisky Of Legends
Known as the most legendary distillery, Karuizawa shut down back in 2000, when demand for whisky was plummeting in Japan. No one knew then of the huge Japanese whisky boom on the horizon. Karuizawa whisky has been in highest demand during this boom, with its single cask bottlings selling for some of the largest price tags the global whisky world has ever seen. Karuizawa is synonymous with quality, luxury, and rarity. As the most prized whisky bottles in existence, there was no better distillery to represent the cherished tradition of the Koinobori.
