product Details

Karuizawa 1981-1983 Honor Sumo Collection / 3 x 70cl

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.

Three bottles dedicated to the martial art of Sumo. Three single sherry butts from 1981 (#818), 1982 (#4971), and 1983 (#3408) with labels displaying Sumo-related prints by Ukiyo-e artist Hachisuka Kuniaki.

Bottled in 2013 at cask strength, all three bottles are numbered as 238. Only 320 of each vintage were produced.

This lot contains an attractive black gloss display, with matching artwork.

Please note that there will be a shipping charge for 3 bottles associated with this lot.
