This is an exclusive to The Whisky Exchange. The whisky is part of a vatting of 77 casks which went through a re-racking process when Number One Drinks Company acquired all of the distillery's remaining stock.
TWE release two versions of this whisky, one at 48% and one at 55% ABV. This was to show the different sides of the Karuizawa whisky character.
This higher proof was said to be more "volcanic and explosive" than the lower proof, offering a chance to see whisky's character without years of sherry cask maturation imparting on the drink.
This handsome looking bottling was distilled in 1999 and 2000, the final vintages of Karuizawa, and bottled in 2012.
Aged in first fill sherry casks
