„First it’s brilliant whisky, and second, it’s ‘different’ whisky. Respect.”
“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.”
“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.”
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.
