A very rare 12 year old Karuizawa, bottled for the Japanese market. This has a lot of interesting flavour to it, with some smoke and stone fruit. Earthy too…

It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
In 1959, the Karuizawa Distillery became the first distillery to export Whisky overseas.
UK-based company Number One Drinks purchased the remaining stocks of Karuizawa’s malt Whiskies in 2011.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
