Those lovely chaps over at the Whisky exchange have a problem - Karuizawa is literally the hottest release, and when they announce that there is going to be a new bottling for sale, the entire whisky world heads to the website and it sells out in minutes.
So this time they tried a new tactic - a lottery to allocate bottles. Were you one of the disappointed masses who didn't win this sherry cask beauty? Well luckily for you, Scotch Whisky Auctions is offering you a second bite of the cherry...
For the rest of you, this is what you're missing out on, according to TWE:
"It’s pretty much what you'd expect – a big, rich and over-the-top sherried whisky from Karuizawa. It has the forest floor and old woody notes as well as all the fruit, spice and stickiness that you want from a bottle like this."
Cask Type: Sherry
Cask Number: 3663
56.8% ABV / 70cl
Please note minor tear on label
Please examine the images of the bottle, packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
