Whisky from the closed distillery of Karuizawa in Japan is fairly in demand these days. With that in mind, the idea behind the Spirit of Asama releases is quite simple and rather excellent. These single malts have been created from 77 casks filled during the final two years of the distillery’s production (1999 and 2000) and released in good numbers at an affordable price. Enjoy the legendary Karuizawa now before it’s too late!
“As with many of the Japanese whiskys, this is bold and striking. The dark sherry taste is transfused with a potent fruit presence. All in all, an excellent choice”.
