product Details

Karuizawa 1981 Single Cask #158 / Sakura Cask - Only 45 Bottles

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 limited release was distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2012.

Produced from single sherry cask #158, which yielded only 45 bottles. This is Bottle No. 30

This release is special for its double-nomenclature, both derived from the Japanese Cherry Blossom: The tree's Japanese name "Sakura" is the name given to this bottling, with its Latin name "Prunus Serrulata" giving itself to the name of the German importer and retailer, Prineus.

Bottled at cask strength.

Please note condition of lot as shown.
