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 bottle was released for the International Bar Show in 2012. It was blended from a combination of whiskies from 1999 and 2000. This is a good whisky like everything else from Karuizawa.
