Description

This bottling was only available to members of FINE+RARE and is the fifth release for the Geisha series. It is one of only 172 that have been filled from sherry cask #4348. Maturation took place for 38 years and as you can tell it is one of the most sought after bottlings in the world today. Karuizawa was founded in 1955 but sadly closed in 2001. All stocks of this amazing single malt are now privately owned and will be bottled in the years to come.
