product Details

Karuizawa 1981 Snow Scenes 35 Year Olds 2 x 70cl / Casks #4322 & #7427

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.

Both of these limited bottlings were distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2016.

Drawn from single sherry casks #4322 (57.8%) and #7427 (57.2%) which yielded only 162 bottles.

Presented in a striking blue box which depicts The Tale of Genji in Snow Scenes by Edo era Ukiyo-e artist, Utagawa Hiroshige.
