Karuizawa Spirit of Asama




Karuizawa Spirit of Asama

Karuizawa Spirit of Asama is an exceptional Japanese single malt whisky that embodies the legacy and craftsmanship of the now-closed Karuizawa distillery, renowned for producing some of the finest whiskies in Japan. Named after the iconic Mount Asama, an active volcano near the distillery, this expression is a true testament to the brand’s connection with nature and its commitment to producing exceptional whisky.

This whisky is part of the “Nature of Asama” series, which celebrates the environmental influence of the surrounding region on the whisky production process. The Spirit of Asama is a reflection of the pristine air, pure water, and natural beauty of the Japanese Alps that have shaped the character of Karuizawa’s whisky.

Karuizawa Spirit of Asama showcases a deep amber hue, a result of its extensive maturation period, which allows the spirit to absorb the flavors and qualities of the oak casks. The influence of the sherry-seasoned oak casks is evident in its flavor profile.

Upon savoring this exceptional whisky, you are treated to a complex and harmonious tasting experience. It offers an array of flavors, from dried fruits and dark chocolate to oak and subtle spices. The sherry cask influence contributes to a delightful sweetness with hints of raisins and toffee. This complexity and balance make it a memorable and sought-after whisky.

What sets Karuizawa Spirit of Asama apart is its rarity. The Karuizawa distillery closed in 2000, and its remaining stocks have become highly prized by collectors and enthusiasts. Each bottle represents a piece of Japanese whisky history and an opportunity to appreciate the legacy of a renowned distillery.

This expression allows you to savor the spirit of the Japanese Alps and the legacy of Karuizawa in every sip.
