Today, Karuizawa is regarded as one of the most sought-after Japanese distillers due to its limited remaining supply. This November, a private bottling of Karuizawa 35-year-old Budō collection will be released by dekantā.

    So far only a few limited edition single cask bottlings have been released, and most have quickly sold out. But now Dekantá, the exclusive Japanese exporter of Nagahama whiskies, is offering the opportunity for individuals to purchase a full 225-liter cask that has previously been filled (seasoned) with the buyer’s choice of either Madeira, Calvados, or sherry, and which will then be filled with Nagahama’s new-made spirit and allowed to gracefully mature into a much-coveted Japanese single malt.
