Karuizawa 40 Years Old 1972 - Single Sherry Cask No.8833

An astonishing 40-year-old Sherry Butt matured Single Malt whisky from closed Karuizawa distillery. This single cask bottling was bottled exclusively for Taiwan and limited to 267 bottles.

Karuizawa Distillery was established in 1955 in the foothills of Mount Asama, an active volcano. The area is a popular mountain resort to the north-west of Tokyo and the distillery is the highest in Japan at 850 meters above sea level.
The environment is ideal for whisky production, enjoying low temperatures and high humidity. Production of single malt whisky at the distillery ceased in 2000.

Single cask releases from Karuizawa distillery have picked up numerous awards in recent years.
