Kawasaki 1976 Ichiro's Choice / 1st Release

One of the very rare bottlings of Kawasaki by Ichirio Akuto. Only a handful of single casks have ever been bottled from this lost Japanese grain distillery.

This 1976 vintage was released in 2009 from refill sherry butts.

The casks were aged at the Yamanashi warehouse and bottled at Chichibu distillery.

One of 95 issued bottles in the first release. These bottles are notable for the mis-spelling of "YMANASHI" on the label. A second run of 432 were subsequently issued with the spelling error corrected.

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.
