Karuizawa Single Casks #4961 & #5006 2 x 70cl / Shinanoya 5th Anniversary

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 pair of limited releases were exclusives for the Japanese wine and spirit merchant, Shinanoya, as their Private Cask 5th Anniversary bottling.  

One was distilled in 1981 and bottled after 31 years of maturation in single bourbon barrel #4961 the other was distilled in 1995 and bottled after 16 years in a Japanese Wine cask #5006.

One of only 228 and 180 bottles respectively.

Both were bottled at cask strength.Shipping will be charged at 2 bottles on this lot.
