Karuizawa Honor Sumo Collection / 1981 / 1982 / 1983​

We are very excited to offer this bottle within our exclusive Karuizawa auction which runs from Wednesday 5th April to Monday 17th April.

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 Butt’s 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 141. Only 320 of each vintage were produced.

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

Please note there will be a shipping charge for 4 bottles associated with this lot due to the added size and weight of the humidity-controlled box.

Important Notice

We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.

Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
