N.V. Karuizawa Noh 28yo Sherry Cask #7576 57.2%

A rare whisky from Karuizawa’s single cask Noh Range, featuring the masks of Japanese theatre performers. Aged in sherry butt number 7576 for 28 years, it was bottled in 2012 at 57.2% ABV. This is one of only 571 bottles to be produced and has been described by Jim Murray as “truly astonishing” and “an absolute one off.” Received a Thumbs Up Award at the Malt Maniacs Awards in 2012.

Karuizawa distillery was founded in 1955 on the slopes of an active volcano called Mount Asama in Nagano Prefecture. It was the first Japanese distillery to export in 1959. But unfortunately it was mothballed in 2000 and despite its quality, the then owners Kirin closed it for good in 2011. It was then purchased by Number One Drinks Company who now distributes the rare and hugely collectable remaining whiskies.
