Karuizawa 1981 Single Cask 35 Year Old #226 / Battle of Kawanakajima
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 bottling was distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2016 at an impressive 35 years old..
Produced from single sherry cask #266, which yielded only 102 bottles.
Bottled at cask strength, this is part of a series of a set of two Battle of Kawanakajima releases. The Battle of Kawanakajima is a work of classical Japanese literature, and has inspired numerous artworks based around its themes, including that used on this label, by Edo era painter, Utagawa Hiroshige.
