product Details

Karuizawa 1981 Noh Single Cask 31 Year Old #8775 / K&L Wines Exclusive​

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 series features different masks used in Noh, one of Japan's traditional performing arts. This image features the mask of the Noh character, Ko-Tobide, a divine spirit and demon-hunter.

This limited bottling was distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2013.

Produced from a single sherry butt, cask #8775, which yielded only 196 bottles.

This bottle was released as an exclusive to Californian wine and spirit merchants, K&L Wines, and is as such 75cl.

Bottled at cask strength.
