Karuizawa Vintage 1981 - First Fill Sherry Cask No.6056
This Karuizawa is from cask number 6056 and was a first fill sherry cask bottled at 60.3% strength. The edition number was never revealed although TWE confirmed they had just 240 of these to sell and as far as we’re aware that seems to be almost the complete edition. The cask has given this whisky an incredible jet black colour that is truly distinctive and sums up the unique approach of Karuizawa. If you could own just 1 example of a sherry cask Karuizawa then this is arguably the one to possess. We’re very pleased to be bringing you this opportunity to bid on what is a classic Karuizawa.
This distillery is sadly no more and with most things in life you don’t truly appreciate something till it’s no longer around. This is particularly so with this distillery that didn’t enjoy the worldwide reputation it has today during its existence. If it had then it’s very likely Karuizawa would still be producing its distinctive whisky today.
