Karuizawa 50 Years Old 1965 - Monyou Edition Bourbon Cask No. 8636

This is a 2017 release from Parisian whisky specialist La Maison Du Whisky. The Monyou Edition is an incredibly well aged single cask matured whisky from legendary closed distillery Karuizawa.

One of only 199 individually numbered bottles which were originally exclusive to LMDW. Bottled at full cask strength (62.6%) from a single bourbon cask (no. 8636).

In addition to the whisky, the bottle is encased in a stunning decorative presentation box.

From LMDW:

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).
