Karuizawa is the gold standard for rare Japanese whisky. The distillery closed its doors in 2011, although it had not been producing whisky for over a decade. Being a silent distillery, everything from Karuizawa is a rare collector’s whisky.
This particular Karuizawa whisky is a Joint Bottling of HST Single Cask. It was matured in a single cask in 1999 and was matured for 14 years, before being bottled in 2013 at cask strength.
