Karuizawa 1996-1997 Sumo: 48 Wrestlers 3 x 70cl / Casks #3648, #824 & #3680

Karuizawa produced outstanding whiskies, many of which have received international acclaim. They have released almost 300 single casks which are becoming increasingly rarer and rarer as demand soars.

This is a stunning 3 bottle presentation, each of which is vintage single cask bottling from the legendary Japanese distillery.

  • 1996 Sherry Cask, bottled 2017 from cask #3648. 62.5%
  • 1997 Sherry Cask, bottled 2017 from cask #824. 58.9%
  • 1996 Sherry Cask, bottled 2017 from cask #3680. 61.0%

There are only 177 bottles of each, and the presentation features the Edo era artwork, 48 Wrestlers, depicting the national sport of Sumo.

Presented in a stunning black presentation box.
