Karuizawa 1964 48YO (cask#3603) is considered to be one of the most sought after Japanese whiksy. Also, it is said to be one of the best Japanese whiskies ever! Don’t miss this opportunity to become an owner of this precious bottle.  This particular one is an absolute must-have for real collectors. The bottle number is #2, which makes it even more unique.

 

Karuizawa 1964 is one of the last remaining 1960s casks of Karuizawa that survived until 2012. On the date of market launch, this 48-year-old edition was also the oldest Karuizawa whisky ever released. Additionally, it was the oldest Japanese single cask whisky in history.
There were only 143 numbered bottles of this beverage on the market. Therefore, a special booklet about Karuizawa was created by David Broom, one of the most recognised whisky critics around the globe and a columnist for Whisky Magazine. Each bottle of Karuizawa 1964 was accompanied with this booklet.

Tasting notes

„First it’s brilliant whisky, and second, it’s ‘different’ whisky. Respect.”
95/100

-Serge Valentin, Whisky Fun

“And what it is, is one of those rare whiskies that creates a world of its own and holds it together so beautifully it’s almost like an image of nature at its best.”

-Stefan Van Eycken, Nonjatta

“Typically bold – that’s the Karuizawa style – while age has allowed a crisp quality to develop on the plate which plays off the depth of the nose.”

-Dave Broom
